Abstract
IN a previous paper (2), the insecticidal properties of a sample of Mundulea bark were described and the bark was shown to be nearly as toxic as Derris root against a number of different insects. The small amount of rotenone which was found in it did not appear to be sufficient to account for the comparatively high toxicity of the sample, and although further samples from the same place, but taken some months later, showed a somewhat lower toxicity, even this seemed too high for the rotenone content. A chemical examination was therefore undertaken, and the results are recorded in this paper.
