The fatty acid composition of three mosses collected in Germany was preliminary analyzed by gas chromatography (GC-FID) and gas I chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) for the first time. It was found that Hypnum jutlandicum could be a promising source of elaidic acid (24.36%) while Bryum moravicum could represent an interesting reservoir of alpha-linolenic acid (19.55 %).
