The membrane enclosing the conglutinate was durable, strong, and resisted handling.
Many unionoid species produce conglutinates, worm-like structures filled with glochidia, that resemble one of the foods in the host fish's diet.
Some conglutinates (packets of larval mussels) that mimic aquatic insects may not be able to attach to silt-covered substrata.
Female mantle tissue and conglutinates can mimic insect larvae and pupae, leeches, flatworms, and even other fish, all of which seem to attract host fish closer for possible infestation by glochidia (Parmalee & Bogan 1998).
