The chemical composition of the fatty acids methyl esters (FAMEs) and other lipids in leaves and roots of Crocus vallicola were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). In this work, twenty-eight compounds, including 22 FAMEs, 1 aldehyde, 3 hydrocarbons (substitute alkane and alkene), 2 alcohols in the leaves and twenty-one compounds (17 FAMEs, 1 anhydride, I substitute alcohol, 1 ketone, 1 substitute amide) in the roots were identified by GC-TVS from C. vallicola. The FAMEs in leaves and roots were highly similar; only the amounts of the esters were different.
