The testes of the land hermit crab, Coenobita clypeatus, contains germinal cells and non-germinative cells. The latter function in the manner of the vertebrate Sertoli cells in apparently providing nourishment, support and possibly hormones during spermiogenesis. Each Sertoli cell surrounds several germinal cells. The mitochondria, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus show changes in structure when in contact with germinal cells in different stages of spermiogenesis. These changes are suggestive of active synthesis and metabolism of cellular products(s).
