Vulpinic acid is the methyl ester of pulvinic acid. It is present in many lichen species and was originally isolated from Letharia vulpine (wolf lichen) in the 19th century with its structure elucidated in the early part of the 20th century. Vulpinic acid exhibits antibacterial, antitumor, anti-inflammatory and plant growth regulation activity, along with a diverse range of other activities.
