The EtOAc extract from the extracellular fluid of the mycelium of Bjerkandera sp. BOS55 contained four novel chlorinated benzoic acid derivatives, i.e. 3-chloro-4-hydroxybenzoic acid, 3,5-dichloro-4-hydroxy- benzoic acid, methyl 3,5-dichloro-4-hydroxybenzoate and methyl 3,5-dichloro- p-anisate. 3-Chloro-4-hydroxybenzoic acid was also produced by B. adusta.
