Inglisera cirrohamata (Linstow, 1888) (Nematoda: Acuariidae) is redescribed based on specimens collected from the type host, Phalacrocorax verrucosus (Aves: Phalacrocoracidae), and the type locality, Kerguelen Island, in the southern Indian Ocean. Three new hosts and 2 new localities were recorded, i.e., Phalacrocorax [atriceps] albiventer and P. brasilianus from Puerto Madryn, Argentina and P. magellanicus from Puerto Williams, Chile. The structure of the cephalic ornamentations was observed and fully described. The presence of 6 pairs of postcloacal papillae is confirmed, a description of the tip of left spicule is given, and the presence of post-deirids is reported for the first time. This constitutes the first record of this nematode in South America and provides the first study of the genus by scanning electron microscopy.
