Sporophores of Daedalia quercina have bean shown to contain a mixture of tetracyclic triterpene acids. After esterification, methyl polyporenates B and C were isolated together with six labile esters. The most abundant of these was demonstrated to be ah half malonate ester and represents the first recorded isolation of such a compound. It has been called methyl methoxy-carbonylacetylqueroinate. Of the remaining five esters, three have been shown to be triterpene half malonate esters, one to be the acetate corresponding to methyl methoxycarbonylacetylquercinate and one to be a free hydroxy compound. The triterpene moiety in two of these latter malonate esters would appear to be the first reported examples of C32 triterpenes.
