Abstract

The following two species are redescribed from Paraguayan freshwater siluriform fishes: Crassicutis [=Eocreadium] intermedius (Szidat, 1954) n. comb. from Cochliodon cochliodon, Hypostomus piratatu, H. commersoni, H. boulengeri and Hoplosternum littorale; and Procaudotestis uruguayensis Szidat, 1954 from Loricaria sp. The redescription of the terminal genitalia of both species indicates that they should be considered members of the family Homalometridae.
