Anacanthorus daulometrus Cohen, Kohn & Boeger, 2012 

Host and locality. Salminus franciscanus  ; São Francisco River, near Três Marias Reservoir (18 º 12 ’ 32 ”S; 45 º 15 ’ 41 ”W), State of Minas Gerais, Brazil (New host and geographic locality).

Site. Gills.

Previous records. Salminus brasiliensis  (type-host): Paraná River, Paraná, Brazil (type-locality) ( Cohen, Kohn & Boeger, 2012)

Specimens studied. Vouchers CHIOCAbout CHIOC 38025 a–e, 38026 a–d, 38027 a–d, 38028.

Measurements. (Based on 14 specimens “in toto”, original measurements in brackets). Body 481 (335–680; n= 9) [525 (460–600; n= 8)] long, 150 (83–293; n= 9) [183 (105–220; n= 8)] wide. Pharynx 35 (n= 1) [36 (30–45; n= 3)] long, [28–45 (34; n= 3)] wide. Haptor 82 (52–160; n= 10) [52 (34–70; n= 15)] long, 91 (58–137; n= 10) [127 (86–175; n= 15)] wide. Anchors, bars absent. Hooks 24 (21–27; n= 40) [23 (18–27; n= 63)] long; FH loop about ½ shank length. MCO 75 (71–84; n= 13) [88 (77–98; n= 17)] long. Accessory piece 59 (56–64; n= 8) [70 (65–78; n= 17)] long. Testis [50, n= 1] long, [66, n= 1] wide. Germarium [40–54 (n= 2)] long.

Remarks. Comparison of the specimens studied with those from the original description support that they are conspecific, even though they differ in the measurements. These differences are likely due to the the fact that each specimen series were collected from a different host species.

S. franciscanus  is a new host record for A. daulometrus  and the São Francisco Basin, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, is a new geographical record.
