One new and four previously known steroid compounds were identified from the Pacific starfishesLuidia quinaria andDistolasterias elegans. The structure of the new steroid was established from spectral data and chemical correlations with other steroids such as 5α-cholestane-3β,5,6β,15α,16β,26-hexaol 3-sulfate (1). The previously known compounds were identified as 5α-cholestane-3β,5,6β,15α,26-pentaol 15-sulfate (2) fromLuidia quinaria and sodium (24S)-O-(β-d-giucopyranosyll-5α-cholestane-3β,6α,8,15β,24-pentaol 6′-sulfate (3), sodium (24S)-5α-cholestane-3β,6α,8,15β,24-pentaol 24-sulfate (4), and sodium tornasterol A sulfate (5).
