Preliminary analysis of the lipids of the sperm masses of three mosses has been accomplished by thin-layer chromatography. The components in Mnium affine Bland. differ from those in Atrichum undulatum Hedw. P.-Beauv. and Polytrichum attenuatum Mentz., which resemble each other. This situation corresponds to a difference in the physical condition of the extruded sperm masses (coherent in Mnium, dispersed in Atrichum and Polytrichum).
