A new chaetochiversin analog, designated chaetochiversin C (1), was discovered from a cultured broth of fungal strain FKI-7792 by physicochemical screening. This strain was identified as a member of genus Neocosmospora based on morphology and DNA barcoding. The partially relative configuration of 1 was determined by 13C-NMR chemical shifts of the acetonide analog of 1. The absolute configuration was determined using an advanced Mosher's method. Compound 1 was assessed for anti-tumor, anti-microbial, and anti-malarial activities, and its ability to scavenge or quench reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as superoxide anion radicals, hydroxy radicals and singlet oxygen (1O2). Compound 1 showed a quenching effect on 1O2.
