From the chloroform extracts of Asphodeline taurica and A. tenuior anthraquinones chrysophanol, asphodeline and microcarpin as well as β-sitosterol, sitosteryl 3β-glucoside were isolated. In addition, A. taurica yielded an eudesmanolide 1β-acetoxy-8β-hydroxy-eudesman-4(15),7(11)-dien-8α,12-olide, while aleoemodin and two new oxepine derivatives, tenual and tenucarb, were obtained from A. tenuior.
