A new mycalamide, mycalamide D (3), has been isolated from the New Zealand marine sponge Mycale sp. This new metabolite, in which the C13-O-methyl group of mycalamide A (1) is replaced by a hydrogen atom, was found to be cytotoxic to a range of mammalian cell lines, with a potency approximately 20-fold less than that of 1.
