Abstract: Chemical analysis of the secondary metabolite pattern of the sacoglossan mollusc Elysia cf. expansa, collected along South Indian coasts, showed the presence of the typical Caulerpa-derived sesquiterpene caulerpenyne (1) and two new minor co- occurring metabolites, the compounds dihydrocaulerpenyne (4) and expansinol (5). The chemical characterization of these molecules, structurally related to 1, is reported
Keywords: Caulerpenyne; Sesquiterpenes; Sacoglossans; Elysia; NMR.
