Pancratium littorale Jacq. collected in Hawaii has been found to produce a new phenanthridone, pancratistatin, that significantly inhibits growth of the murine P388 lymphocytic leukaemia; an X-ray crystal structure determination of pancratistatin monomethyl ether (1c) was employed to assign structure (1a) to pancratistatin.
