We describe the first occurrence of the family Thismiaceae in the Brazilian Cerrado and a new record of Thismia panamensis (Standl.) Jonker for Brazil. We found the species in an urban fragment of semideciduous forest, municipality of Jataí, southeastern Goiás state, Central Plateau Brazil. The record of this achlorophyllous mycoheterotrophic monocot is important, improving the knowledge of the flora of Cerrado domains and giving a better understand of the biogeography of Brazilian mycoheterotrophic angiosperms.
