The title compound, (I), is a naturally occurring ursene-type triterpene isolated from the medicinal plant Saussurea nivea Turcz. This plant has been used as antibacterial, inflammation-diminishing drugs and febrifuge. The structure of compound (I) has been reported previously based on spectroscopic methods (Kakuda, et al., 2003) . In order to further confirm the structure and conformation of (I), a crystal structure analysis, reported here, was undertaken.
