A sample ofTeloschistes flavicans collected in summer 1955 was found to contain physcion and fallacinal in the proportion of 4∶1 and did not contain any appreciable amount of teloschistin. A pure sample of teloschistin has been obtained by the partial methylation of citreorosein using methyl sulphate and potassium carbonate and is found to melt at 243–44°. On oxidation with manganese dioxide it has yielded fallacinal.
