Abstract
Gas-liquid chromatography was used to analyse the fatty acids of lipids in larvae, propupae, pupae, and newly emerged adults of workers and drones of Egyptian and Carniolan honeybees and their F1 hybrid in Egypt. Oleic acid constituted more than 50% of the total acids and palmitic 30 to 45% except in newly emerged adults, where it was much less. Adult drones had considerable palmitoleic acid as well as dienoic and trienoic acids.
