Table 1 Neutral lipid content of triacylglycerol (TAG), free fatty acid (FFA), diacylglycerol (DAG) and structural lipid content (phospholipid and sterol) in auricularia (A), auricularia with hyaline spheres (HS) and through metamorphosis via doliolaria (D) to pentactula (P) (see Fig. 7)

  1. One-way permutational analysis of variance (Type III SS, 9999 unrestricted permutations of raw data) using the PERMANOVA + 1 package within PRIMER 7.0.13 (Primer E, Quest Research Ltd) on a Euclidean distance matrix. Pairwise tests show stages that are significantly different separated by spaces; stages that are not significantly different are shown by square brackets
