A new chlorinated dihydroisocoumarin, palmaerin A (1), and three new brominated dihydroisocoumarins, palmaerins B (2), C (3), and D (4), were isolated from the supernatant of the culture broth containing KCl and KBr of discomycete Lachnum palmae, respectively. The structures of 1-4 were elucidated by spectroscopic data and X-ray diffraction analysis. Compounds 2 and 3 exhibited weak antibacterial activity against Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, while compounds 1-3 showed plant growth regulating activity against Lepidium sativum.
