Abstract

A member of the family Orchidaceae, Oncidium cebolleta (Jacq.) Sw., is used by the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico as a temporary replacement for peyote. We have found it to contain the known compounds 2,7-dihydroxy-3,4,6-trimethoxyphenanthrene (2), 2,7-dihydroxy-3,4,6-trimethoxy-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene (3), 2,3-dihydroxy-4,7,8-trimethoxyphenanthrene (1), and the new compounds 2,7-dihydroxy-3,4-dimethoxyphenanthrene (5) and 2,7-dihydroxy-4,8-dimethoxyphenanthrene, (6).
