A new Lycopodium alklaoid, nankakurine B (2), has been isolated from the club moss Lycopodium hamiltonii together with nankakurine A (1). Stereochemistry of 2 was elucidated by combination of NOESY correlations and chemical transformation. Stereostructure of 1 was revised to be the same as that of 2. Nankakurine A (1) induced secretion of neurotrophic factors from human astrocytoma cells.
