1.  One of the prettier nematodes, where the "crown" at the mouth end is made by elongated lips, which presumably helps the bacterial-feeding nematode to catch and funnel bacteria into the mouth.

2.  Note the cylinderal stoma of this bacteria-feeding nematode.

3.  Many species of Bacillus: sturdy, big rods, many of which will chain.
