The cyclo­hexene ring that constitutes a part of the tetra­hydroxanthene fused-ring system of the title compound, C23H26O4, adopts a flattened half-chair conformation that approximates an envelope conformation (in which the methyl­ene C atom bearing the two methyl substituents represents the flap) as five of the six atoms lie approximately on a plane (r.m.s. deviation = 0.020 Å). The mean plane of the cyclo­hexene ring with the hy­droxy substituent is approximately perpendicular to the mean plane of the tetra­hydroxanthene system. In the crystal, adjacent mol­ecules are linked by O—H⋯Ocarbon­yl hydrogen bonds into a chain running along the b axis.
