The structure and function of leg I as an organ of anchorage of the adults and the immature stages of Myobia (M.) muris-musculi (Schrank) based on the whole mounts and histological preparations reflected at different foci under the optical microscope and observations on the stages of the living parasite under the dissecting microscope are briefly described. Other accessory organs involved in anchorage are briefly discussed.
