The corm becomes the seat of a development of a special visual organ, the arthropod eye (as opposed to the Chaetopod eye).
Florida pocket-gopher burrows and their arthropod inhabitants.
In other words, without the arthropod host the disease-producing organism cannot complete its development.

Audouin gave the detailed demonstration of this by his accurate and minute determination of the pieces of the arthropod skeleton.
Turn the arthropod on its back and the relative positions of the systems of organs are the same as in the Vertebrate.
We now have to consider the cases in which the arthropod acts as the essential host of a pathogenic organism.

Any of numerous invertebrate animals of the phylum Arthropoda, including insects, crustaceans, arachnids, and myriapods.
Any of numerous invertebrate animals of the phylum Arthopoda, characterized by an exoskeleton made of chitin and a segmented body with pairs of jointed appendages. Arthropods share many features with annelids and may have evolved from them in the Precambrian Era. Arthropods include the insects, crustaceans, arachnids, myriapods, and extinct trilobites, and are the largest phylum in the animal kingdom.
