For a studyon the production of ${\gamma}$-linolenic acid(GLA) by fungi 3 fungal strains were isolated from soil. Their cell growth lipid content and fatty acid composition were compared in shake flask culture. Among these fungi the fungus designated as FA-007 has high lipid content(21.1%) and GLA content(15.6% of total fatty acids) The fungal strain FA-007 was tentatively identified as Mucor sp. on the basis of morphological characteristics, Fungal oil produced by this fungus was composed of 75.2% neutral lipid 5.3% glycolipid and 19.5% phospholipid. Although the GLA content in phospholipid was higher than it in neutral lipid the GLA content in neurtal lipid was high as 15.5%.
