The genus Trichaptum is re-evaluated from Brazil and 10 species are accepted. Trichaptum durum, T. fumosoavellaneum and T. griseofuscens are reported as new for Brazil, while T. perrottetii is a new record to the Brazilian Semi-Arid and Cerrado, and to mangrove areas of north and northeast Brazil. Descriptions and line drawings of the new recorded species from Brazil and a revised key to the neotropical species of Trichaptum are provided.
