Vriesea is the third largest genus in Bromeliaceae and is broadly distributed along of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. We report the first record of Vriesea correia-araujoi for the Espírito Santo state, in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim municipality, southeastern Brazil. So, the geographic distribution of this species is extended to beyond the Serra do Mar complex, since it was registered as endemic to the coastal region of Rio de Janeiro state. A map with the distribution of the species is presented, as well as the list of examined material.
