From the leaves of Blumea arfakiana Martelli (Asteraceae), used in traditional medicine in Papua New Guinea, besides stigmasterol and β-eudesmol, four graniline esters (1-4) have been isolated. Furthermore, blumealactone C (5), deacetylblumealactone C (6), and deoxyblumealactone C (7) have been identified.
