Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) disease is attributed with hard clam mortalities from Atlantic Canada down to
Virginia. Prior field investigations discovered that resiliency to QPX infection varied considerably among
different clam stocks. QPX descriptions and pathologic severity have also varied among field surveys and
diagnostic reports, raising the question of whether there is more than one strain of the parasite throughout its
