Abstract

Laboratory tests of nine species of fish as hosts for glochidia of Lampsilis higginsi Lea indicated that four species were fully suitable: largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides Lacepede), smallmouth bass (M. dolomieui Lacepede), walleye (Stizostedion vitreum vitreum Mitchill), and yellow perch (Perca flavescens Mitchill). Juvenile L. higginsi also developed on green sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus Rafinesque) but some fish sloughed their infections prematurely.
