Two alkaloids of indolotryptanthrins, cephathrindole A (1) and B (2), were isolated from Cephalantheropsis gracilis. The structure of cephathrindole A was confirmed by X-ray crystallography whereas cephathrindole B was ascertained by spectroscopic analysis (1D 1H- and 13C-NMR as well as 2D COSY, HMQC, HMBC, and NOESY).
