Mikrocytos mackini is the etiological agent of Denman Island disease, which causes significant mortalities in commercially important bivalve species, including the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas. A close relative of M. mackini, Mikrocytos sp., was recently detected in oysters imported into France from Canada.
