We have analysed diterpene quinone constituents of 79 species (containing variety
and form) in the genus Salvia by different chemical methods, and found that 38 species
of them contain diterpene quinone on this ground, as well as its morphologic, histological structure of root and geographical distribution, we come to a conclusion as follows:
l. According to literatural and our analytical date, so far the diterpene quinone
have mainly been found in the Labiatae plants that possess the fertile stamen 2 versatile namely in Salvia Linn., upon which a new subfamily Salvioideae is preliminarily
2. Deterpene quinone, as a chemotaxonomic charater, is of phylogenetic significance and can be used for identifying the spicies of the genus.
3. A further rearrangement of some species of some series and sections in attribu-tion is needed.
