Abstract: Two new cycloartane-type triterpene glycosides were isolated from rhizomes of Curculigo orchioides. Their structures were elucidated as 3β,11α,16β-trihydroxycycloartane-24-one-3-O-[β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→3)-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→2)-β-D-glucopyranosyl]-16-O-α-L-arabinopyranoside(1) and (24S)-3β,11α,16β,24-tetrahydroxycycloartane-3-O[β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→3)-β-D-glucopyranosyl(1→2)-β-D-glucopyranosyl]-24-O-β-D-glucopyranodide (2), respectively, on the basis of their spectroscopic methods.
