Three new sphingosine‐type glucocerebrosides, CE‐2b (1), CE‐2c (2) and CE‐2d (3), were isolated by means of highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC) from a cerebroside molecular species (CE‐2) which was obtained from the less polar fraction of the methanol extract of the sea cucumber Cucumaria echinata. The structures of these cerebrosides were determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidences. (Formula Presented.)
