Abstract: During the course of our continuing studies on marine natural lipid products,two known sphingolipids have been isolated for the first time from a specimen of themarine sponge Oceanapia ramsayi collected at Itampolo on the west coast of Madagascarin the Indian Ocean. The structures were elucidated using NMR data and by comparisonwith literature data. The occurrence of these sphingolipids within other Oceanapia spp. isdiscussed.
Keywords: Oceanapia ramsayi; Demospongiae; sphingolipids; rhizochalin.
