ALKALOIDS 37 OF THE MENISPERMACEAE 18. 3 c0ccu1us yp 0 c0ccu1us c0ccu1us There are 28 bibliographic citations on these new alkaloids from plants of the family Menispermaceae. They are distributed between the genera Cocculus (29, Hprbaena (2) and Pachygone (1). The name derives from Erythrina, one of the genera of the family Fabaceae,from which many alkaloids, and the first of this type, were isolated. Changes in the position of the double bond, constitute the main differences between the five sub-types.

In 1804, August0 de Candolle listed the relations between the medicinal properties of the vegetables and their external morphology and emphasised the advantages of using this aspect for classification. In 1889, Eykman showed the presence of alkaloids in some plant families, and, in 1891, Greshoff indicated that the alkaloid laurotetanine was an usual chemical constituent of some plants of the family Lauraceae. He also said that the genus Platanus was rich in cyanogenic compounds (78). 5). Another way to define it would be the classification of a group of organisms through their chemical constituents.

Linearis and C. olivascens are two of the four species of a new genus created in 1971 by Bameby and Rrukoff (89). The seventeen alkaloids found in the genus are of the types: BIQ (l), BisBIQ (5), PROAPO (4) and PROTOB (7). It is interesting to note the common biogenetic origins of the above types of alkaloids. 50 BARBOSA-FILHO, DA-CUNHA, AND GRAY c. Genus Telitoxicum Telitoxicum, like many other genera in this family, are climbing plants found in the Amazon region. The two species investigated, T glaziovii and T.
