Anisospira (Trachycion) velascorum Breure was described in 1977 from a locality near the highroad between the towns of Pochutla and Puerto Escondido on the coast of Oaxaca, southern Mexico. After its discovery, the species was never reported again elsewhere. Herein we report a new record of several specimens of A. velascorum near Pochutla town, in the Chepilme Botanical Garden, 58.3 km west of the type locality. This find represents an opportunity to study several unknown aspects of this species.
