Acanthocrios furnarii   has always been associated with the “hornero” [ Furnarius rufus (Gmelin, 1788)   ] in Argentina and Uruguay ( Turienzo & Di Iorio 2007), but recently the bug was found in nests of Hirundo rustica   [erythrogaster Boddaert, 1789], Progne chalybea   [domestica (Vieillot, 1817)] ( Aramburú & Carpintero 2006) and also Progne elegans Baird, 1865   [Aves: Hirundinidae   ] from Buenos Aires ( Carpintero & Aramburú 2007). Swallows are probably the primary hosts of Acanthocrios furnarii   , and the bugs’ presence in such other nests as those of Furnarius rufus   and A. annumbi   , is probably due to nest parasitism by bird species ( Turienzo & Di Iorio 2007). Cimicidae   are known to remain for a long time in swallows ´ nests, and can go without feeding for prolonged periods when swallows abandon some nesting sites; sometimes during these times engorged bugs have been found with other animals that used the cliff swallow nests ( Loye 1985). It is not known if A. furnarii   can survive and form large colonies in the nests of birds other than swallows ( Table 1).
