A bioassay-guided chemical study of a methanolic extract of fresh leaves of Luma chequen led to the isolation of lumaflavanones A (1), B (2) and C (3) whose structures are proposed on the basis of NMR spectroscopic data. The structure of lumaflavanone A was confirmed by X-ray analysis. Antifeedant (Spodoptera littoralis), brine shrimp (Artemia salina) and fungistatic (Botrytis cinerea) bioassays showed that while 3 was the most active in the first two assays the mixture of 1 and 2 was more effective as a fungistatic.
