The aerial parts of Microglossa zeylanica collected in Sri Lanka contained β-farnesene, squalene, dammadienyl acetate, caryophyllen-1,10-epoxide, 5,4′-dihydroxy-6,7,8,3′-tetramethoxyflavone, dehydrofalcarindiol and two new alicyclic diterpenes, microglossic acid and dihydromicroglossic acid. Their structures were elucidated by high field 1H NMR spectroscopy.
