In this study we reported the analysis of the medium polarity fraction obtained from an accession of Helichrysum microphyllum subsp. tyrrhenicum from La Maddalena Island. Besides several compounds already evidenced in this species and related genera, i.e. micropyrone (1), arzanol (2), helipyrone (3), acetyl-bitalin derivatives (4, 5), gnaphaliol (6), caffeic acid (7), ursolic acid (8), 7-O- β-(D-glucopyranosyl)-5-methoxy-1(3H)-isobenzofuranone (9), gnaphaliol-9-O-β-D- glucopyranoside (11) and gnaphaliol-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (12), was evidenced for the first time the presence of a new glycosidic phthalide, 6-O-β-(D-glucopyranosyl)-4-methoxy-1(3H)- benzofuranone (10), which resulted a structural isomer of compound (9). The occurrence of this new benzofuranone derivative is an additional evidence of the deep intraspecific variability expressed by this species which was also stated for the non volatile components, and may be a distinctive trait of the population growing on La Maddalena Island.
