Abstract: The tegumental surface of Taenia hydatigena Pallas, 1766 and its metacestode Cysticercus tenuicollis was studied by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The outer part of the bladder wall and parts of the strobila of the taenia were studied with special attention to some differences in the density, form and structure of the microthriches and, as a result, in the relief of the surface in general. These specificities are connected with certain adaptations to the living conditions and reflect the growth and development of the taenia. The changes in the type of the free tegumental surface are related to the digestive functions of the teguments and to changes in the environment of the larval and the adult forms of Taenia hydatigena.
