Abstract The red pigment produced by the basidiomycete Phlebia strigozonata (Schw.) Lloyd is shown to be 3,6-diphenyl-4,5-methylenedioxy-1,2-benzoquinone by spectral evidence, and alkaline hydrolysis to polyporic acid and formaldehyde. Treatment of this quinone with acetic anhydride and hydrated sodium acetate gives in high yield the compound 2-acetoxy-3,6-diphenyl-4,5-methylenedioxy-benzyl acetate.
