There are pantothenate auxotrophs of Neurospora crassa that do not  
synthesize fatty acids without supplementation. These mutant strains  
are available from the Fungal Genetics Stock Center at the University  
of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS 66160-7420. Their e-mail  
address is fgsc at ukanvm.cc.ukans.edu. The Stock Center is a very good  
source of information, strains, and some cloned genes of Neurospora  
and Aspergillus, especially.
