It was also registered at Gonothyraea loveni   (named as Laomedea loveni   ), Campanulina lacerata (Johnston, 1847)   and Dynamena pumila (Linnaeus, 1758)   from Kiel Bay, the North Sea ( Precht 1935).

Record on other hosts/subtrata: It was reported on crustaceans e.g., Carcinus maenas (Linnaeus, 1758)   ; Crangon crangon (Linnaeus, 1758)   ; Gammarus locusta (Linnaeus, 1758)   ; Jaera albifrons Leach, 1814   (= Jaera marina   ); Palaemon adspersus Rathke, 1836   (= Leander adspersus   ) from Norway and Germany ( Precht 1935; Morado & Small 1995; Mayén-Estrada & Utz 2018). The species was also found at artificial substrates (glass slides) that were immersed in water at a depth of ca. 1 m for 10 days in abalone-farming pond on the coast of Qingdao, China ( Ji et al. 2006). It was listed among ciliates of the Baltic Sea ( Mironova et al. 2009).
