We report the first occurrence of the genus Gyrodontium Pat. from the Brazilian Cerrado based on our finding of G. sacchari (Spreng.) Hjortstam. This also represents the first record of the family Coniophoraceae from the Midwest Region of central Brazil. We identified the sample by morphological and phylogenetic analyses (ITS gene), and a voucher was deposited in the fungarium of the Universidade Estadual de Goiás (HUEG-Fungi). This record adds to the knowledge of the Cerrado’s funga by providing new phylogenetic and biogeographic data for G. sacchari from a Neotropical region.
