Three populations of X. dentatum originating from a mountainous region of Yugoslavia are described. The morphological and biometrical characteristics are studied and compared with those of other previously described populations of X. dentatum for a reappraisal of the variability and limits of this species. Spines have been observed for the first time in the uterus of specimens of the type population of X. turcicum.
