Heterophylloidine (Aconitum heterophylloides Stapf) and panicutine (A. paniculatum Lam.) have been shown to be identical. CD measurements on derivatives of heterophylloidine and hetisine indicate that the keto groups in panicutine must be located at C(6), C(13) and not at C(6), C(11) as previously reported. The structure of panicutine is therefore 1, as proposed earlier for heterophylloidine.
