Abstract: An analysis of the IUE and optical spectra of the WN-C star HD 62910 confirms the classification as WN6-C4, and shows that both the WN and WC lines arise in the same stellar wind. A Sobolev analysis of the observed line strengths gives the following mass abundance ratios: C/N = 0.26, C/He = 0.0024, N/He = 0.01, and H/He = 0.0, consistent with predictions of stellar evolutionary models for the short-lived phase between the WNE and WC stages.
