Two new natural taxanes were isolated from the heartwood of Taxus cuspidata. The structures were established as rel-(2α,5α,7β, 9α,10β,12α)-7,9-bis(acetyloxy)-2-(benzoyloxy)-11,12-epoxy-1, 5-dihydroxy-10-[(hydroxyacetyl)oxy]tax-4(20)-en-13-one (1), and (2α,5α,10β,14β)-taxa-4(20),11-diene-2,5,10,14-tetrol 2-acetate (2) on the basis of spectroscopic analysis.
