We have studied isolated magnetic bacteria using light and electron microscopy, and classified those which contain bullet-shaped magnetic particles into four distinct morphological types, designated BS-1 to BS-4. Two of the types, BS-1 and BS-2, are new, and have unusual arrangements of magnetic particles. The rod-shaped bacterium BS-1 has a dense network of several thousand magnetic particles, whereas BS-2, a coccus, contains magnetic particles arranged radially in bands.
