From the sponge, Ircinia dendroides, collected in Indonesia we isolated a new cyclic hexapeptide, waiakeamide (1). Its structure, consisting of three proline residues, two methionine sulfoxides, and one thiazolylphenylalanine, was elucidated by spectral analysis and chemical degradation. Isolation and structural elucidation of waiakeamide is described.
