Abstract
    The structure and the composition of the cuticle of the Tardigrada Macrobiotus sp. and Milnesium tardigradum are studied. The cuticle is always made of two distinct layers extending to the stomodeum. By the two species, the cuticle contents, besides chitin, acid mucopolysaccharides and protids. These facts are arguments to bring nearer Tardigrades and arthropods.
