Occurrence of Perkinsus olseni (Protozoa: Apicomplexa) and other parasites in the venerid commercial clam Pitar rostrata from Uruguay, southwestern Atlantic coast.
Of the metazoan parasites, trematodes were found in 11% of the individuals analyzed, and the sequencing of the ITS-5.8S gene cluster of the parasite confirmed that it belonged to the Perkinsus olseni species.

Checklist of digenean parasites of birds from Argentina
A checklist that summarizes the diversity of digeneans of birds from Argentina, each account is based on a literature search and gives, for each digenean species, their hosts, site of infection, localities, life cycle if known, and collection number of types where they are housed.
A single clonal lineage of transmissible cancer identified in two marine mussel species in South America and Europe
A single transmissible cancer lineage has crossed into two new host species and has been transferred across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and between the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
A survey of larval digeneans in the commonest intertidal snails from Northern Patagonian coast, Argentina
Six species of digenean parasitising four snail species were found; four of them were registered for first time: Maritrema sp.
Parasite-mediated shell alterations in Recent and Holocene sub-Antarctic bivalves
Based on previous findings of morphologically identical shell alterations in Gaimardia trapesina (Bivalvia, Gaimardiidae) from Magellanic and sub-Antarctic waters, it is suggested that the parasites responsible for the traces reported here belong to a digenean platyhelminth species of the Gymnophallidae genus Bartolius.
Host-parasite relationship of the geoduck Panopea abbreviata and the green alga Coccomyxa parasitica in the Argentinean Patagonian coast.
FURTHER STUDY OF CONTRACAECUM PELAGICUM (NEMATODA: ANISAKIDAE) IN SPHENISCUS MAGELLANICUS (AVES: SPHENISCIDAE) FROM ARGENTINEAN COASTS
The first detailed description of C. pelagicum adults from S. magellanicus is presented and fourth-stage larvae that parasitized both hosts were assigned to a nondeterminated Contracaecum species.
Helminths of the kelp gull, Larus dominicanus, from the northern Patagonian coast
The helminth community of L. dominicanus on the Peninsula Valdés coast seems to be richer than those reported by previous authors in other localities in Argentina, possibly due to a greater diversity in prey items available.
