Identification and Quantification of Fatty Acids in T. viridissima, C. biguttulus, and C. brunneus by GC-MS

Table 3

A comparison of the major fatty acid classes found in both T. viridissima and Chorthippus sp. All values are presented as mg/g of sample dry weight and as (%) of total fatty acid content.
