Abstract

Streptocara formosensis (Nematoda: Acuariidae) is recorded for the first time from South America (Chubut Province, Argentina) and from the Chubut steamerduck, Tachyeres leucocephalus (Aves: Anatidae), enlarging its host and geographical distribution. To our knowledge, this is the first record of a parasite in this bird species.
