One new sesquiterpene hydroquinone, together with four known sesquiterpene hydroquinones and one hydrocarbon have been isolated from the bioassay-guided fractionation of the CH2Cl2 extract of the marine brown alga Dictyopteris undulata (zonarioides). The structural elucidation is based on the analysis of spectroscopic data. This is the first report of isolation of 6 from this alga.
