Spiroplasmas are bacteria in the Class Mollicutes that are frequently associated with insects and/or plants. This scanning electron micrographs shows symbiotic/ commensal spiroplasma-like organisms (SLOs) in the midgut of a leafhopper, Dalbulus elimatus. SLOs found in this insect are long and tubular shaped with a tip structure (t). This image is related to Fig. 3 in Arch. Microbiol (2011) 193:35-44.
