Three new spirobisnaphthalenes (13) were isolated from the mangrove-derived fungus Rhytidhysteron sp., together with five known derivatives (48). The structures of the compounds were established on the basis of extensive spectroscopic data, and the relative configurations of their stereogenic carbons were determined by a single-crystal X-ray crystallographic analysis. Compounds 35 displayed cytotoxicity against both cancer cell lines, MCF-7 and CaSki, while 2 was active only on CaSKi cells.
