In our screening for antitubercular agents, five naphtho-γ-pyrones including two new naphtho-γ-pyrones glycosides, indigotides G and H (1 and 2), and two diphenyl ethers were isolated from the extract of a sponge-derived fungus Metarhizium anisopliae mxh-99. Their structures were established on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence. The antitubercular activities of all the compounds were evaluated against Mycobacterium phlei. The known isochaetochromin B2 (6) and ustilaginoidin D (7) exhibited the highest activity with MICs 50.0 μg/mL.
