Fruit-bodies of Anthracophyllum species contain acetates of cycloleucomelone, cyclovariegatin and atromentin in high concentrations. The cycloleucomelone derivatives are responsible for the green colour reaction with aqueous alkali both on surface. Cyclovariegatin has been synthesized via pyrandione intermediates.
