Note. Linstow (1896) described Acanthocephalus tumescens  from Odontesthes hatcheri  [syn. Basilichthys microlepidotus  ] from Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego. The type-locality of A. tumescens  was obtained from the specimens examined by Linstow (1896) and desposited at the ZMH. Odontesthes hatcheri  is distributed to the continental Andean Region of southern South America ( Conte-Grand et al. 2015 and references therein). Therefore, it is possible that the type host for Acanthocephalus tumescens  could be other similar marine silverside species (see note for Heterosentis heteracanthus  above). Ortubay et al. (1994) reported adult specimens of Acanthocephalus tumescens  in the intestine of Percichthys colhuapiensis MacDonagh  from Musters Lake. Percichthys colhuapiensis  is considered a morphotype of Percichthys trucha  (see Ruzzante et al. 2011). Rauque et al. (2002) and Fernandez (2011) experimentally infected rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss  with specimens of Acanthocephalus tumescens  collected from Galaxias maculatus  from Mascardi Lake, Río Negro Province. Fernandez (2011) experimentally infected Oncorhynchus mykiss  with Acanthocephalus tumescens  by feading rainbow trout with naturally infected Galaxias maculatus  from Moreno Lake, Espejo Lake and Gutiérrez Lake, Río Negro Province.
