We consider the magnetic NLS equation

$(-\varepsilon i \nabla+A(x)) ^2 u+V(x)u=K(x) |u|^{p-2}u, \quad x\in R^N,$

where $N \geq 3$, $2 < p < 2^*: = 2N/(N-2)$, $A:R^N\to R^N$ is a magnetic potential and $V: R^N \to R$, $K:R^N \to R$ are bounded positive potentials. We consider a group $G$ of orthogonal transformations of $R^N$ and we assume that $A$ is $G$-equivariant and $V$, $K$ are $G$-invariant. Given a group homomorphism $\tau:G\to S^1$ into the unit complex numbers we look for semiclassical solutions $u_{\varepsilon}: R^N\to C$ to the above equation which satisfy

$u_{\varepsilon}(gx)=\tau(g)u_{\varepsilon}(x)$

for all $g\in G$, $x\in R^N$. Using equivariant Morse theory we obtain a lower bound for the number of solutions of this type.
