To date there are about 380 scientific publications on eumetazoan parasites collected from aquatic animals from Chile. However, all this information is spread on different bibliographic sources including some old articles (a century old). Few studies have summarized in checklists the surveys of some groups of parasite and host species. The main objective of this study is to prepare a checklist, from a bibliographic revision, of all the eumetozan ectoparasite species of aquatic organisms from Chile. This checklist includes invertebrate and vertebrate hosts associated to aquatic systems, from continental (e.g., rivers, lakes, lagoons, salars, streams) and marine environments (e.g., estuaries, littoral and open sea). From this checklist, a list with 215 ectoparasite species was obtained, with another 44 surveys of parasites identified to genus level and others with unidentified parasite species. All the surveys compiled here were gathered from 172 host species, mostly marine fishes. This revision was based on 182 published articles from Chilean and foreign sources


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