          Abstract

          Australapatemon canadensis Dubois and Rausch, 1950 (Digenea, Strigeidae) is reported parasitizing to Cygnus melancoryphus (Molina) (Anatidae) from Lacombe Lagoon, Buenos Aires Province and Pellegrini Lake Río Negro Province, Argentina. This species is described and compared with related species. The finding of A. canadensis in C. melancoryphus in Argentina represents a new host record extending to South America the geographical distribution of this species.
