Certain insecticidal species of plants representing six genera of the family Fabaceae contain constituents that are closely related chemically. Rotenone is found in Cracca, Derris, Lonchocarpus, Millettia, Mundulea and Ormocarpum. Deguelin, an isomer of rotenone, and tephrosin, a hydroxydeguelin, are found in Cracca, Derris, and Lonchocarpus. Toxicarol is found in Cracca and Derris. Other constituents of minor insecticidal value are also found in these plants.
