Abstract
    The branchial bopyrid Pseudione tuberculata infests species of the family Lithodidae (Anomura). Previously known as a parasite of Neolithodes diomedeae off Archipelago de los Chonos, Chile, and Paralomis granulosa from shallow waters in the Beagle Channel, Argentina, it is herein reported from a new host, Lithodes santolla, also from shallow waters in the Beagle Channel, Argentina. The female and male of Pseudione tuberculata are redescribed in detail and fully illustrated. A comparison of the specimens from the Beagle Channel with those of the type series, and comments on the distribution of P. tuberculata are included.
