Epicoccamide is an ornate linear fatty acid with an acyl tetronic acid terminus and glycosidic alkyl terminus, originally isolated from Epicoccum purpurascens in 2003. Although not extensively profiled, epicoccamide is non-cytotoxic, unlike the weak activity shown by related analogues, epicoccamides B, C and D.
