A new locality of a rare species, Peziza saniosa (Pezizales, Ascomycota), is reported in Ukraine. The fungus was found in August 2016 in the Uholsko-Shyrokoluzhanskyi Mountain Range of Carpathian Biosphere Reserve (Transcarpathian Region, Ukraine). Earlier P. saniosa was registered in Ukraine only once, more than a hundred years ago in Ternopil Region. Thus, the current record from the Ukrainian Carpathians is the second one for Ukraine. A brief description of the species, information on its general distribution, and original illustrations are provided.
