Water-distilled essential oils of two subspecies of Acinos troodi (Post) Leblebici, namely, subsp. vardaranus Leblebici and subsp. grandiflorus Hartvig & Strid, both of which are endemic taxa in Turkey, were analysed by GC-MS. One hundred and seven compounds were identified in the oil of subsp. vardaranus and 79 compounds were identified in the oil of subsp. grandiflorus. The main constituents were found to be hexadecanoic acid (7.5-18.2% and 15.2-22.3%) and germacrene D (10.2-14.5% and 14.1-29.7%), respectively. Copyright (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
