By repeated chromatography on Polikhrom-1, silica gel, and Florisil, ethanolic extracts of two species of starfish,Culcita novaeguineae andLinckia guildingi, have yielded the new steroid glycoside culcitoside C1 (I): 5α-cholestan-3β,4β,6α,8,15β,24ξ-hexaol 24-O-[2,4-di-O-methyl-β-D-xylopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-L-arabinofuranoside], C39H68O14, mp 245–248°C, [α]D -35.8°, c 0.6; methanol). Its structure was shown by the results of acid hydrolysis, acetylation and methylation, and1H and13C NMR spectroscopy.
