The X-ray crystal structure analysis of the mould metabolite (3aS-cis)-2,3,3a,12a-tetrahydro-4-hydroxy-6,8-dimethoxyanthra[2,3-b]furo [3,2-d]furan-5,10-dione, which contains two C20H16O7 molecules per asymmetric unit in P2(1), reveals that the molecule contains five fused rings: a planar section of three six-membered rings and one five-membered ring, with a final cis-fused five-membered ring. The OH group in each molecule is involved in an intramolecular hydrogen bond [O...O 2.518 (6) and 2.547 (6) angstrom].
