New host fish confirmation from Watters et al. (2005): Cottus bairdi (mottled sculpin) and Micropterus dolomieu (smallmouth bass). One host, Micropterus salmoides (largemouth bass), is capable of acquired resistance to glochidial infection following repeated infection attempts in the laboratory (Dodd et al., 2005).
