The complex matrix representation for a quaternion matrix is used in this paper to find necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of an $H$-selfadjoint $m$th root of a given $H$-selfadjoint quaternion matrix. In the process, when such an $H$-selfadjoint $m$th root exists, its construction is also given.
