VERA S., Rodrigo  and  PEQUENO R., Germán. Finding of Hirundichthys rondeletii (Valenciennes, 1847) in Ancud, Chiloé, with data on flying fishes in collections of Chile (Osteichthyes: Exocoetidae). Investig. mar. [online]. 2002, vol.30, n.2, pp.61-67. ISSN 0717-7178.

The finding of one specimen of the flying fish Hirundichthys rondeletii, accidentally captured off Ancud (42°S, 74°W aprox), Chile, is communicated. This is the southernmost record for the species in the southeastern Pacific. The specimen is analyzed and morphologically compared with other conspecific from collections. The possible causes of its appearance in such southern latitude are discussed and catalog data including location of other specimens of the family Exocoetidae preserved in collections of Chile are given

Keywords : flying fish; Exocoetidae; Hirundichthys; ichthyogeography; Chile.
