      The fruiting bodies of the carrot truffle Stephanospora   caroticolor were extracted yielding two pigments,   2-chloro-4-nitrophenol and stephanosporin. The structure of   stephanosporin was confirmed by synthesis followed by analysis by   GC/MS.  Also isolated were 4-hydroxyacetanilide,   4-amino-2-chlorophenol and 4-nitrophenol. A scheme for the   enzymic degradation of stephanosporin to 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol   is presented.
