From the alcohol extract of the whole plant of Humata pectinata, two new triterpenoids were isolated along with the known compounds neohop-13(18)-ene (4), neohop-12-ene (5), hop-21-ene (6), hop-22(29)-ene (7), and diplopterol (8). On the basis of spectral and chemical evidences, it was shown that the two new triterpenes have the structures corresponding to hopan-3β-ol (1) and hopan-3β-yl acetate (2).
