We describe the molecular composition of a portion of the solvent-soluble organic material (lipid extract), from three organic rich muds (samples 116-717C-22X-1, 80-86 cm, 116-717C-34X-3, 130-135 cm, and 116-717C-55X-1, 65-70 cm). These samples were taken from Hole 717C, located on the Bengal Fan at a position of 0°55.8'S and 81°23.4'E. Both the palaeoenvironmental and digenetic significance of these lipid distributions have been assessed and found to be consistent with their suspected origins, i.e., turbidites from the upper slope of the western Bay of Bengal and the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta.
