A new flavonoid, 5,7-dihydroxy-2-(1-hydroxy-2,6-dimethoxy-4-oxo-cyclohex)-chromen-4-one (1), was isolated from the roots of Macrothelypteris torresiana (Gaud.) Ching. (Thelypteridaceae). The structure of the product was identified on the basis of detailed spectral analysis, including X-ray structure analysis.
