GONZALEZ, EXEQUIEL R.. The freshwater amphipods Hyalella Smith, 1874 in Chile (Crustacea: Amphipoda). Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2003, vol.76, n.4, pp.623-637. ISSN 0716-078X.

The Chilean fauna of amphipods has been poorly studied. Freshwater amphipods in Chile have a single genus in epigean environments. Seven species of the genus Hyalella are reported for Chile: H. simplex; H. fossamancinii, H. kochi; H. chiloensis; H. costera; H. araucana, and H. franciscae. A short diagnosis, a key and figures are given for each species
