The Nigerian and South African varieties of Siphonochilus aethiopicus were examined for their phytochemical constituents. The ethyl acetate extract of the rhizomes of the South African variety yielded a novel diarylheptanoid, 2,3-diacetoxy-7-(3'',4''-dihydroxy-5''-methoxyphenyl)-1-(4'-hydroxy-3'-methoxyphenyl)-5-heptene and the flavonoid 3,7-dimethoxyquercetin. From the hexane extract of the Nigerian variety, siphonochilone and another flavonoid, 3,4',7-trimethylkaempferol were isolated.
