B (25% infested) and Favosites gothlandicus (I I % infested) in the Gorstian, however, no preference was observed concerning the favositid (infestation rates from 11% to 71%) or heliolitid (infestation rates from 25% to 42%) type of tabulate morphology.
The number of infested tabulate species in the Silurian of Podolia increases from one in the Late Homerian to five in the Gorstian, and decreases to two in the Ludfordian (Table 2).
Chaetosalpinx has been interpreted as a tabulate parasite, considering its position between the corallites, perforation of the host's skeleton and soft tissue, modification of its phenotype and possible inhibition of its growth (Zapalski 2007).
In Palaeozoic tabulate corals bioclaustrations are preferentially found in common host taxa that span millions of years of geologic time, e.
