A new polyene pigment, melanocrocin, has been isolated either from fruit bodies or myce­lial cultures of the subterranean fungus Melanogaster broomeianus. The structure of the pig­ment was determined by spectroscopic methods and chemical transformations. Melanocrocin is the N-acyl derivative of ʟ-phenylalanine methyl ester with a polyolefinic carboxylic acid
