From freshly fertilized eggs of the sea hare Aplysia kurodai, collected in Fukuoka Prefecture, the new laxative lipid, the diacylglyceryl ether mixture (1) and cholesteryl ester mixture (2), in addition to the three nucleosides 4, 5, and 6, have been isolated. The structures of 1 and 2 were elucidated on the basis of chemical and spectral evidence. The nucleosides 4, 5, and 6 have been identified as 1‐(2‐deoxy‐β‐D‐ribofuranosyl)thymine, adenosine, and inosine, respectively.
