Ramaria aurea (Schaeff.) Quel. and Clavariadelphus ligula (Schaeff.) Donk. are fungal species of the family Gomphaceae and representatives of the class Agaricomycetes that are widely distributed over Siberia and the Russian Far East. Young fruiting bodies of both species are used as food because of the high gustatory qualities. Information on the chemical components and biological activity of R. aurea and C. ligula has not been published. Preliminary investigations found that extracts of these fungi possessed cytotoxic and antiradical activity. The goal of the present work was to study the chemistry of R. aurea and C. ligula fruiting bodies.

Fruiting bodies of these plants were collected in the vicinity of Pykhta Gap (Zaigraev District, Republic of Buryatiya, Aug. 24, 2012, 51°59′56′′N, 107°44′12′′E). The species was determined by Cand. Pharm. Sci. G. V. Chekhirova (IGEB, SB, RAS, Ulan-Ude). Specimens of the raw material are preserved in the herbarium of the IGEB, SB, RAS (Nos....
