Interpretive Summary: Numerous classes of flavonoids have been isolated from the plant kingdom; however, 5-acetyl-6-methylgossypetin was isolated from a natural source for the first time. Although its 3-O-glycoside was isolated from A. pyrifolia in 1975 for the first time, there are no other reports on the isolation of the compound. Thus, 5-acetyl-6-methylgossypetin is considered to be a unique compound in common with A. laetevirens and A. pyrifolia. These results suggested that A. laetevirens might be chemotaxonomically associated to A. pyrifolia due to the presence of 1 and 5-acetyl-6-methylgossypetin (1) might be useful for chemotaxonomic studies of the genus Atraphaxis.
