Heteropriapulus simplex Li & Huang, 2012 

( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3)

Specimens studied. 30 SpecimenS frOm Pterygoplichthys ambrosettii  frOm the Aguapeí RiVer: 10 VOucherS in CHIOC (38843a, b; 38844,–38849; 38850a, b), 15 VOucherS in CHIBB (252–266L) and 5 VOucherS in IPCAS (M- 653).

Type host. Hypostomus plecostomus (LinnaeuS)  ( SilurifOrmeS  : LOricariidae  ).

Additional host. Pterygoplichthys ambrosettii (HOlmberg)  ( SilurifOrmeS  : LOricariidae  ) (neW hOSt recOrd).

Site of infection. GillS.

Type locality. GuangzhOu , China. 

Distribution. China (impOrted), Brazil (Aguapeí RiVer, municipality Of CaStilhO, Paraná RiVer baSin, SãO PaulO State, Brazil, 21°3'36.20"S, 51°45'38.58"W—neW geOgraphical recOrd).

Representative DNA sequence. 1,575 bp lOng Sequence Of the D1–D3 regiOn Of the lsr DNA Of One Specimen frOm P. ambrosettii  (GenBank AcceSSiOn NO. MF 116372).

Remarks. Heteropriapulus simplex  WaS deScribed frOm H. plecostomus  intrOduced tO China frOm SOuth America ( Li & Huang, 2012). SpecimenS fOund in P. ambrosettii  differ Only Slightly, eSpecially in their SOmeWhat greater Size and a thicker dOrSal cOnnecting bar, frOm SpecimenS deScribed by Li & Huang (2012) frOm the type hOSt ( Table 2). The preSent Study prOVideS a neW hOSt and geOgraphical recOrd fOr H. simplex, Which  iS repOrted frOm the prObable Original diStributiOn area, i.e. NeOtrOpical RegiOn, fOr the firSt time.
