The1H and13C NMR spectra of two withasteroids isolated fromPhysalis ixocarpa Brot. have been studied in detail. Their spectral characteristics are discussed. A comparison of the results obtained has led to the identification of a withasteroid with the composition C28H40O8, mp 291–292°C (from methanol) as ixocarpalactone A, in spite of some difference in its physical constants. The other compound, with mp 252–253°C (from methanol), had the composition C28H40O6, [α] D 20 +27±4°, is new and has been called ixocarpanolide. The structure of 5α,20R-dihydroxy-1-oxo-6α, 7α-epoxy-22R-witha-2-enolide has been proposed for it.
