Knowledge of morphometric characteristics of Heterodoxus spiniger was widened on the basis of material collected from the dog (Canis familiaris) from India. Study, mostly by scanning electron microscope, concerned the males, females and nymphs of H. spiniger. The functional role of some elements, particularly observed surface ultrastructures, has been pointed out. The differences between postembrional stages were determined as well as literature on H. spiniger were critically analysed.
