At high cell density, and viewed at lower magnification, the cells move as a coordinated swarm, often in radial patterns. As a manifestation of their pervasive social behavior, here the predominant gliding pattern of the cells is by "S" or "social" motility.

For further information about "S" motility see references 9 and 10 in References.
