Coherent magnetic structures comprising a magnetic vortex and an electron hole have been shown to be created by a Weibel-type, anisotropy driven instability. These structures arise from the electric and magnetic trapping of resonant electrons in the growing fields of the instability. The results of two dimensional Vlasov simulations of the nonlinear development of the instability are compared with a novel analytical model of a stationary propagating phase space structure which includes the depletion of the trapped electrons corresponding to the electron holes.
