During an investigation on coprophilous fungi from Brazil, several sporangiophores of a mycoparasitic fungus were recovered from horse dung collected in Recife, Pernambuco, Northeastern Brazil, and identified as Syncephalis obliqua. This is the first record of the species in the Neotropics, as well as in a host growing on herbivore dung, and its second world record. A detailed description and high quality images are provided, along with an identification key to all Syncephalis species recorded in Brazil.
