Mucor minutus (Baijal & B.S. Mehrotra) Schipper is described for the first time from northeastern Brazil. The specimen was isolated from the soil of Florestas do Jussará, an upland forest fragment in Pernambuco state. In Brazil, M. minutus has previously been isolated only from the state of São Paulo from the soil of the Atlantic Forest. The occurrence of M. minutus in Florestas do Jussará is presented and discussed, and a detailed description and illustration of the specimen are presented. This article contributes to the knowledge of mucoralean distribution.
