One new natural product, 1-phenylethyl-O-α-L-rhamnopyranoside, together with eight known diketopiperazines and two benzene derivatives were isolated from the endophytic fungus Colletotrichum crassipes, whereas six known compounds including two griseofulvins, three cytochalasins and one dihydroisocoumarin were produced from the endophyte Xylaria sp., both endophytic fungi are associated with leaves of Casearia sylvestris. Cyclo(D)-Pro-(D)-Phe, N-(2-phenylethyl)acetamide and 5-carboxy-6-hydroxy-3… Expand
