A thin-layer chromatographic analysis of Drosophila melanogaster revealed a lipid to be found almost exclusively in the adult male. The compound or class of compounds having an R(F) close to that of methyl oleate is present in substantial amounts and is located predominantly in the ejaculatory bulb. It appears from genetic studies that the formulation of the lipid is not mediated by the Y chromosome.
