Ant plant Myrmecodia rumphii Becc. is an epiphytic plant that is widely used by local people as an herbal medicine to treat various diseases such as rheumatic and tumors. Methanol extract of M. rumphii Becc. showed high cytotoxicity against shrimp larvae Arthemia salina Leach and antioxidant potential as indicated by high inhibitory activity against DPPH radicals. In the present paper, we provide for the first time the results of phytochemical screening of ant plant M. rumphii Becc. Powder of M. rumphii Becc. was extracted with n-hexane, methylene chloride, ethyl acetate, and methanol then concentrated until concentrated extract was obtained. Test of compound groups was carried out qualitatively. The results showed that there were various metabolites of alkaloids, triterpenoids, steroids, flavonoids, phenolics, and tannins which were scattered in extracts with various levels of polarity. From these results it can be concluded that the plants of M. rumphii Becc's contains secondary metabolites which have interesting bioactivity.
