Summary:The sesquiterpenoids alpha -cedrene, cedrane, cuparene, cedren-10-one, 8beta H cedran-9-one and cuparenic acid have been identified in the fossil resin retinellite and a montain wax (both Oligocene) from lignite beds in the Bovey basin of Devon, England, and in the Pliocene fossil resin ionite from the Ione valley of California, U.S.A.
