Abstract

Summary

Organisms of two strains of possessed one polar flagellum of unusual thickness. Negative-contrast staining and ultrathin sectioning indicated that the flagella are sheathed and are comparable in structure to the sheathed flagella described in Vibrio and Bdellovibrio. In some instances, flagella displayed sheath and core structure after negative constrast staining. Distal ‘tubules’ and ‘knobs’ apparently consisting entirely of sheath material were also seen. The thickness of the sheath, which in section consisted of an outer dense component and an inner lighter component, was similar to that of the outer double track membrane of the cell wall.
