Spirillum (spire-ill-um), a motile bacterium, twisted body form, with (polar) flagella at both ends of the cell. Don t believe any microscopists who pontificate that you cannot see bacterial flagella with the light microscope. Phase contrast. This picture was taken by David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler and Virginia Edgcomb of material from the salt marsh at Little Sippewissett (Massachusetts, USA) in Autumn, 2000 and in Spring and summer, 2001.
