Abstract : The contours of some rotationally symmetric lecithin vesicles were photographed under a phase contrast microscope. On the assumption that the shapes are controlled solely by the curvature elasticity of a fluid membrane, theoretical shapes were fitted to the observed vesicle contours. In all cases an excellent fit was possible by varying the spontaneous curvature.
