larvae of freshwater mussels in the family Unionidae are obligate parasites of fishes and amphibians prior to their metamorphosis into juveniles. Suitable host species vary among mussel species, and even where two mussel species in the same genus use fishes of a single genus as host, the host species is diferent in some cases (Jones et al., 2006). Therefore, determining the hosts for individual mussel species represents a very important ecological study on Unionidae as wel as other families in… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Two alien species, largemouth bass and tadpole of American bullfrog, are unsuitable hosts for the glochidia of the freshwater unionid mussel Unio douglasiae nipponensis in the Kanto area, Central Japan.
TLDR
The suitability of the largemouth bass, Micropterus salmoides, common freshwater goby, and tadpoles of the American bulfrog as hosts for glochidia of the freshwater unionid mussel Unio douglasiae nipponensis is examined. Expand
Host Fish Species for Glochidia of Anemina arcaeformis Revealed by Artificial Infection Experiment
TLDR
In this study, host suitability for glochidia of the bivalve Anemina arcaeformis was tested in sh of 12 taxa in 4 families by an arti cial infection experiment and metamorphosis rates from parasitized larvae to juveniles was high. Expand
Laboratory evidence suggests glochidia metamorphosis in Sinanodonta japonica (Bivalvia: Unionidae) is supported by gills, but no other tissues of the host Gymnogobius urotaenia (Perciformes: Gobiidae)
TLDR
It is concluded from a laboratory experiment that the artificial introduction of S. japonica glochidia onto G. urotaenia gills is a better procedure for obtaining juvenile mussels than the introduction onto fin or scales. Expand
