Cyclopiamines C (1) and D (2) were isolated from the extract of Penicillium sp. CML 3020, a fungus sourced from an Atlantic Forest soil sample. Their structures and relative configuration were determined by 1D and 2D NMR, HRMS, and UV/vis data analysis. Cyclopiamines C and D belong to a small subset of rare spiroindolinone compounds containing an alkyl nitro group and a 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinoline-2,6-dione ring system. NMR and MS/HRMS data confirmed the presence of an epoxide unit (C-17-O-C-18) and a hydroxy group at C-5, not observed for their known congeners. Cytotoxic and antimicrobial activities were evaluated.
