The tribocytic organ and tegument of Fibricola seoulensis were examined histochemically for the detection of carbohydrates, mucosubstances, amyloid, collagen and alkaline phosphatase. The surface, secretes, gland cells of the tribocytic organ, and the tegument of the worms were positive to periodic acid Schiff (PAS) and PAS with diastase stain but negative to other stains. It was inferred that the tribocytic organ and tegument of F. seoulensis comprise neutral mucopolysaccharides, which may take a protective role against host enzymes. The surface and secretes of the tribocytic organ, and the tegument of the worms were also positive to double bridge PAP for alkaline phosphatase. This fact suggests that they may play a role as both self protective and host tissue lytic functions.
