Two new Lycopodium alkaloids, lycopladines F (1) and G (2), have been isolated from the club moss Lycopodium complanatum, and the structures and relative stereochemistries of 1 and 2 were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data. Lycopladine F (1) is a rare C16N2-type Lycopodium alkaloid possessing an amino acid residue (C4N).
