1. Two sesquiterpene lactones have been isolated from the epigeal green part ofArtemisia caucasica Willd.: one with the composition C15H18O5·H2O, which has been called grossmisin, and one with the composition C15H18O5, identified as rutifolin. Structure (I) has been proposed for grossmisin.

2. The structure of anhydroaustricin has been reviewed. Structure (II) is proposed for it.
