Four isolates of the non-motile species Aeromonas media, including the type strain, were demonstrated by transmission electron microscopy to possess polar flagella. Motility appeared to be restricted to old, regularly subcultured strains, and coincided with an increase in colony size and a concomitant reduction in the amount of brown diffusible pigment produced by colonies on tryptone soya agar.
