Foliar material of Gunnera manicata (Gunneraceae) was examined for the presence of phenolics using standard extraction and identification techniques. Two lIavonoids, quercetin 3-0-ga1actoside and quercetin 3-0-g1ucoside and an unidentified ellagitannin are reported as occurring in G. manicata . The presence of quercetin 3-0-galactoside and a high concentration of ellagitannins offers some phytochemical support for a putative relationship between the Gunneraceae and Saxifragales.
