Abstract

Electron micrographs are shown of the gas-vacuolate square bacterium found at the surface of a brine pool in Sinai. The bacteria have a thickness of 0·1; μ or even less in the central regions. Some are apparently surrounded by sheath material. They contain gas vesicles which are either spindle-shaped or cylindrical with conical ends, and up to 1 μ long. The bacterial surface has 20 nm subunits arranged in a regular array.
