Armillaria luteo-virens, also known as “Huang Mo Gu,” is a special medicinal and edible mushroom in northwest of China. This fungus is mainly distributed in the meadow and grassland of Qinghai-Tibet plateau and used as traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of headache, neurasthenia, insomnia, and infantile convulsion [1]. Modern studies have demonstrated that A. luteo-virens possesses antitumor [2] and antioxidant [3] activities. However, studies on the chemical constituents of A. luteo-virens are very limited. According to previous studies, only three reports on the chemical constituents of A. luteo-virens have been reported [2, 4, 5]. In this paper, we report the isolation and structural elucidation of 13 known compounds (1–13); nine of these compounds (1–3, 8–13) were isolated for the first time from the fruiting bodies of A. luteo-virens. The structures of all isolated compounds were characterized by ESI-MS and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
