During an expedition to the Raso da Catarina Ecological Station, state of Bahia, Brazil, we collected litter samples from Syagrus coronata (Mart.) Becc. containing fungal stroma. The material was morphologically identified as belonging to Diatrypella heveae Senwanna, Phookamsak & K.D. Hyde (Diatrypaceae, Xylariales); its known geographic distribution was then limited to Thailand. Diatrypella heveae was originally described on Hevea brasiliensis L. and Brahea armata S. Watson in the Chiang Rai Province, Wiang Chiang Rung District, Thailand. We report here the first occurrence of D. heveae in the Neotropics, as well as a new host, S. coronata, a palm tree endemic to the Brazilian semiarid region.
