Chara drouetii R.D. Wood, 1965 was recently collected during floristic surveys of aquatic macrophytes in the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. This discovery represents the first documented record for this species from the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. This report extends the range of Chara drouetii by approximately 300 km east of the nearest known occurrence of this species in Mexico and approximately 6,000 km northwest of the type locality (municipality of Fortaleza, state of Ceará, Brazil). Comparative morphometric data on diagnostic taxonomic characters of this species are presented.
