A new trinorcycloartane triterpenoid, lancifodilactone H (1), and a new A ring-secocycloartane triterpenoid, lancifoic acid A (2), together with a known compound, nigranoic acid (3), were isolated from the leaves and stems of Schisandra lancifolia. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic data analysis. Compound 1 features a biosynthetically modified seven-membered lactone ring, which was confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compounds 1-3 exhibited weak anti-HIV-1 activity in vitro.
