Abstract

Seven species of Sporormiella are reported from fresh dung collected in a survey including different vegetation areas throughout Pernambuco, Northeastern Brazil. An undescribed, long-necked, small-spored species is proposed as Sporormiella longicolla. Sporormiella isomera is a new record for the Neotropics; S. australis, S. leporina, and S. pentamera are new records for Brazil; and S. herculea (a rare species) and S. minima are also recorded. Descriptions, photographic plates and digital line drawings are provided, along with an identification key to all Sporormiella species recorded in Brazil. Substrate relationships and distribution data of these fungi are also discussed.
