Mytilicola intestinalis primarily affects the marine mussels Mytilus edulis and M. gall provincialis. M. intestinalis has also been shown to affect Ostrea edulis and Crassostrea gigas in both field and laboratory studies (Baird, R.H. et al., 1951; Dare, 1982; Aguirre Macedo, M. L., and Kennedy, C. R. 1999).

Revision and update of the original leaflet by V. Dethlefsen, 1985.
