Abstract

The long-chain fatty acid compositions of 22 species of were determined, and compared with the fatty acid compositions of 10 species of the genus that contain coenzyme Q9. The long-chain fatty acid results were also compared with other phenotypic criteria (i.e. assimilation of carbon sources, coenzyme Q type, G + C content and proton magnetic resonance spectra) in order to establish possible anamorph/teleomorph relations. Close correlations were found between known perfect/imperfect states. The results suggest that and , and and , also have anamorph/teleomorph relationships.
