Transport measurements were performed on the organic layered compound \aI3 under hydrostatic pressure. The carrier types, densities and mobilities are determined from the magneto-conductance of \aI3 . While evidence of high-mobility massless Dirac carriers has already been given, we report here, their coexistence with low-mobility massive holes. This coexistence seems robust as it has been found up to the highest studied pressure. Our results are in agreement with recent DFT calculations of the band structure of this system under hydrostatic pressure. A comparison with graphene Dirac carriers has also been done.
