Four simple iridoid glucosides, three known esters of catalpol, seven esters of aucubin, and two phenylethanoids were isolated from Veronica hookeri (syn. Hebe ciliolata; Plantaginaceae). Of these, none of four aromatic (p-methoxybenzoyl, isovanilloyl, veratroyl, caffeoyl) 6-O-esters of aucubin and 6″-O-benzoyl mussaenosidic acid, had been reported from nature before. Similarly, three simple iridoid glucosides, two esters of 6-O-rhamnopyranosylcatapol, and two phenylethanoid glucosides, as well as 1-O-benzoyl-3-α-glucuronosylglycerol, and 1-O-β-benzoyl rutinoside were isolated from Veronica pinguifolia (syn. Hebe pinguifolia). The compound 3″-O-benzoyl-2″-O-caffeoyl 6-O-rhamnopyranosylcatalpol had not been reported previously. The pattern of the structural features of the iridoid glucosides is overlaid onto the latest molecular phylogenetic framework of Veronica sects. Hebe and Labiatoides, and discussed in the context of evolutionary trends.
