Two novel phosphorus-containing neutral glycosphingolipids of the arthro series were isolated from the blowfly Calliphora vicina Meigen: GalNAc alpha 1----4GalNAc beta 1----(X---- 6)4GlcNAc beta 1----3Man beta 1----4Glc beta 1----1-ceramide and GalNAc beta 1----(X----6)4GlcNAc beta 1----3Man beta 1----4Glc beta 1----1- ceramide (X = -O-P(O)(O-)-OC-H2CH2NH3+). The primary structure of the ceramide pentasaccharide was elucidated de novo using two-dimensional 1H NMR correlation spectroscopy at 500
