The Bishop of Argentina is a bishop in the Anglican communion, the head of the Anglican Diocese of Argentina.

Buenos Aires succeeded the Falkland Islands as the episcopal seat for the whole of South America during the 19th century, but it is now the seat only for the Diocese of Argentina within the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone of the Americas.

The diocese was founded in 1910 from the Diocese of the Falkland Islands.[1]

The incumbent diocesan bishop is Gregory James Venables (born 1949) who was appointed in 2002.
