Freshwater shrimp (Palaemonetes Australis) may be involved in glochidia release from the freshwater mussel(Westraluno Carteri)
Klunzinger, M.W. (2011) Freshwater shrimp (Palaemonetes Australis) may be involved in glochidia release from the freshwater mussel(Westraluno Carteri). The Western Australian Naturalist, 28 (1). pp. 61-65.
