Abstract: Xylaria xylarioides is reported for the first time from Europe based on two recent collections from Catalonia and Galicia in Spain, and three previous unpublished records including one from Corfu (Greece) and two from Tenerife (Canary Islands) made by Dr. Walter Jaklitsch. An illustrated description of the material collected in Galicia is provided together with comments on the morphological variations encountered in X. xylarioides, its known distribution worldwide, ecology and taxonomic affinities
