Abstract

A previously unrecognized bacterial flagellar structure present in and is described. The structure is located just below the insertion of the flagellar apparatus through the bacterial wall. It is disc shaped, approximately 100 nm in diameter and has eleven spokes radiating from a central hole. The function of this new structure and its possible importance in the taxonomy of campylobacters and other spiral micro-organisms are discussed.
