Abstract: A new sterol was isolated from the leaves of Limonium stocksii, together with two other known sterols. The structure of new sterol was determined to be 3-Oxo-23-α-hydroxy methyl stigmasta-4-ene on the basis of spectroscopic evidences.

Keywords: Limonium stocksii, sterols, 3-Oxo-23-α-hydroxy methyl stigmasta-4-ene.
