From the leaves of Meliosma lepidota ssp. squamulata, one new sesamintype lignan was isolated. Its structure was first elucidated by spectroscopic investigation and then finally determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis. The anti-Leishmania activity of the new lignan and related ones, (+)-aptosimon, (+)-sesamin and (+)-paulownin, isolated from this plant was evaluated.
