Abstract

Seed oil content and fatty acid composition of seed lipids in 4 species of Consolida viz., C. orientalis, C. armeniaca, C. glandulosa and C. hoheneckeri of the family Ranunculaceae are reported. The oil ranges from 44.5 to 53.1% by dry weight. The 18:1 chain length pattern was dominant fatty acid in seed lipids in all the 4 species examined. Among the total 7 fatty acids, 18:2 was the next abundant lipid component whereas pattern 16:1 and 20:0 were minor constituents in all the four species.
