The occurrence in the plant kingdom of the allelopathic substance, lepidimoide, was studied. Lepidimoide is widespread in the exudates from all plant species studied. Lepidimoide occurred in especially large amounts in the exudates of germinated seeds of sunflower and buckwheat, but it was also detected in those of rice, lettuce, slender smaranth, leek and persian speedwell. Lepidimoide amounts did not differ greatly among genera or families.
