The composition of the essential oil produced from the flowering aerial parts of Haplophyllum megalanthum Bornm. (Rutaceae), endemic to Turkey, was analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Among the fifty-eight compounds constituting about 91.7 % of the essential oil, the main components were characterized as palmito-gamma-lactone (45.8 %), octadecatrienoic acid (10.7 %), linoleic acid (6.5 %), octadecatetraenoic acid (6.3 %) and nonacosane (4.8 %).
