Broomeia congregata Berk. is a gasteroid fungus with a predominant African distribution. However, it has been documented twice, in 1912 and 1973, as occurring in Catamarca Province (Argentina, South America). Nearly forty years later, a new finding is reported for San Luis Province, Argentina. The report includes new morphological information based on scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In addition, some phenological, biogeographical and ecological implications concerning B. congregata are discussed.
