Bacteria are shaped as cocci (spherical), bacilli (rod-shaped), and spirilla (curved or spiral). The three broad classifications of bacteria on the basis of shape are coccus (plural cocci, spherical), bacillus (plural bacilli, rod-shaped), and spirillum (plural spirilla, spiral or curved). Under these there are sub-types as the chart demonstrates.
