E-mail: cassimonteiro@hotmail.com Austrodiplostomum compactum Szidat & Nani, 1954, like others digenetics, have fishes as second intermediate host and piscivorous birds as definitive host. Three neotropic cormorants, Phalacrocorax brasilianus (Gmelin, 1789), from the upper São Francisco River were infected with adults of A. compactum; twenty species of fish, from the São Francisco river, were infected with Austrodiplostomum sp. metacercariae. The parasitic indices were higher in the Perciform and some species of Siluriform than in the majority species of Characiform fishes. Fifteen species of fishes are new record of second intermediate fish hosts in addition to 37 species knew in Brazil. This work contributing with the studies of the helminths and their associated fauna from São Francisco river basin, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil.
