We report the total synthesis of an alkaloid isolated from the mangrove fungi Hypocrea virens, based on the originally claimed structure, via a photochemical sequence. Inconsistencies between data sets led to a revision of the proposed structure followed by a concise synthetic sequence to deliver the revised natural product.
