(25S)-3β-{β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)]-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy}spirost-5-en-27-ol and (25R,26R)-3β-{β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)]-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy}-26-methoxyspirost-5-ene were isolated from the ethanolic extract of fresh bulbs and petals of Lilium candidum L. Their structures were derived mainly from NMR and mass spectra.
