The lipids of flesh and combined hepatopancreas and gonad of Anadara granosa were fractionated into hydrocarbons, sterol esters, triglycerides, wax esters and polar lipids. Fatty acids of total lipids, sterol esters, triglycerides and wax esters were analysed by gas chromatography. Significant quantitative variations were observed in the fatty acid compositions of the various lipid components of the two samples studied.
