Investigation on the constituents of the titled plant collected in June resulted in the isolation of mallotucin B and mallotucins C and D (as acetates). Mallotucin A (≡teucvin), which is the only diterpenic constituent in the plant collected in December, was not detected. Structures of mallotucins C and D were elucidated on the basis of their chemical correlation with mallotucin A and the detailed spectral analyses of their acetates. Mallotucin A is suggested to be biosynthesized from chettaphane-type precursors, mallotucins B, C and/or D.
