A new C-glycosylflavone, apigenin 7-Me ether 6-C-[β-xylopyranosyl-(1→3)-β-glucopyranoside] named distemonanthoside was isolated from the stem bark of Distemonanthus benthamianus Baill., Fabaceae, along with six known compds., sitosterol 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, 4-methoxygallic acid, syringic acid, quercetin, 6''-O-acetylvitexin, quercetin 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside.  The structures of those compds. and others were detd. through spectral analyses.  Compds. distemonanthoside, sitosterol 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, 4-methoxygallic acid and quercetin were tested against a clin. isolate strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis AC 45; they exhibited good to moderate antitubercular activities with MIC values ranged from 31.25 to 125 μg/mL.
