Two juvabione-related compounds, (+)-todomatuic acid and dehydrotodomatuic acid, were found in conjunction with certain balsam woolly aphid infested Abies grandis (Dougl.) Lindl. and Abies amabilis (Dougl.) Forbes but not with noninfested trees. The localized occurrence and variable distribution of these compounds within the wood of infested trees is discussed.
