    Monoalgal cultured Eutreptielia gymnastica contained chlorophyll a and b. The acetylenic carotenoids diatoxanthin and diadinoxanthin were among the main xanthophylls while their non-acetylenic analogues zeaxanthin and antheraxanthin were absent. The structurally most complex carotenoid was identical with neoxanthin. Three of the xanthophylls isolated could not be positively correlated with carotenoids previously reported from the Euglenophyceae. The ketocarotenoids astaxanthin, canthaxanthin and echinenone were absent.
