Abstract

A new cytotoxic trichothecene sesquiterpene, verrol 4-acetate, was isolated, along with known macrocyclic trichothene mycotoxins and medicinal styrylpyrones, from cultures of a new deuteromycete Acremonium neo-caledoniae Roquebert et Dupont n. sp., taken from drifting wood in the southwestern lagoon of New Caledonia.
