A technique is described for studying hot spring microbial morphotypes by using electron microscope grids incubatedin situ. Such studies revealed the presence of filaments bearing swollen saclike structures in a number of New Zealand hot springs. There was considerable variation in the size, structure, and morphology of the filaments and the saclike structures.
