Three new kalihinane diterpenoids Δ9-kalihinol Y (1), 10-epikalihinol I (2) and 5,10-bisisothiocyanatokalihinol G (3) were isolated in the present study along with previously detected kalihinane diterpenoids kalihinol A (4), kalihinene (5) and 6-hydroxykalihinene (6) from the Okinawan marine sponge, Acanthella sp. Kalihinol A (4) was noted to possess remarkable in vitro antimalarial activity.
