Abstract: SEM of Hasstilesia tricolor, a trematode parasite of rabbits, reveals retorse spines on the anterior, dorsal and ventral surfaces of the body. Spines are reduced on the suckers and are lacking at the posterior end. The spines penetrate the rabbits' mucosal cells and aid in holding the trematode in its tissue site between the intestinal villi.
