In our continuing research on cytotoxic components from the Formosan pteridophyte Thelypteris torresiana (GAUD.) ALSTONONE, two new compounds, a novel flavonoid, flavotorresin (1), and a flavonoid diglycoside, multi-florin C (2), along with five known compounds, were isolated. The structural elucidation was established on the basis of spectroscopic data analysis. The possible biosynthetic pathway of the flavonoids from this fern is summarized.
