A new alkaloid, stemona-lactam S, and a known alkaloid, tuberostemospiroline, were isolated from the roots of Stemona tuberosa LOUR. (Stemonaceae). Their structures and absolute stereochemistry were established by X-ray crystallography and vibrational circular dichroism. The roots of Stemona japonica (BLUME) MIQ., S. tuberosa LOUR., and S. sessilifolia (MIQ.) MIQ. are used as an antitussive and an insecticide in traditional medicine in China and Japan, and the alkaloidal components are
