A. Bosea sp. (isolate 3) in the process of being phagocytized by Acanthamoeba polyphaga (arrows) and in the extracellular media, as seen on electron microscopy. 8,900 x magnification. Bar represents 200 nm. B. Chryseobacterium-like rod (isolate 7) within A. polyphaga (arrows), as seen on electron microscopy. Arrow show the trilammelar membrane. mi = amoebal mitochondria. 36,000 x magnification. Bar represents 200 nm.
