This study compiles the parasite and hosts species of Chile from aquatic systems surveyed in different scientific studies, mainly published between 1897 and 2007. The fauna of eumetazoan endoparasites of aquatic hosts were represented by the phyla Platyhelminthes, Nematoda and Acanthocephala. A total of 162 parasite species were surveyed, plus another 97 records of parasites identified to genus, family or order level. The class of Trematoda had the highest number of species (63) followed by Cestoda (58). This checklist surveyed the endoparasites of 174 host species in which 109 were fishes (19 chondricthyans and 90 teleosts). A few records of endoparasites were found in invertebrate hosts, such as annelids, crustaceans and molluscs

 

Key words: Checklist, parasites, aquatic organisms, invertebrates, vertebrates
