A new diterpenoid with a rearranged neoclerodane skeleton, spiroleucantholide (compound "S1"), along with four known diterpenoids-salvifaricin (compound "S2"), isosalvipuberulin (compound "S3"), salvileucantholide (compound "S4"), and salviandulin E (compound "S5")-was isolated from the aerial parts of Salvia leucantha CAV.. The structures were established by spectroscopic methods, including the X-ray analysis of spiroleucantholide (S1).
