A benzophenone, 2,2',5,6'-tetrahydroxybenzophenone (1), and one xanthone, 5-hydroxy-3- methoxyxanthone (2), were newly described as natural products from the leaves and the stem barks of Hypericum lanceolatum, along with the known compounds friedelin (3), betulinic acid (4), allanxanthone A (5), 1,3,6-trihydroxyxanthone (6), isogarcinol (7), sitosterol 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (8), 1-hydroxy-6- methoxyxanthone (9), 6,7-dihydroxy-1,3-dimethoxyxanthone (10), 3-hydroxy-5-methoxyxanthone (11), 1,7- dihydroxy-3,6-dimethoxyxanthone (12) and calophyllumin A (13). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic means and comparison with published data.
