Abstract

Aptroot A. & Cáceres M.E.S. 2018: New species and new records of lichens from inselbergs and surrounding Atlantic rain forest in the Chapada Diamantina (Bahia, Brazil). – Herzogia 31: 359–373.

Seven species of lichens from the state of Bahia (Brazil) are described as new: Dimelaena mayrhoferiana, Enterographa glaucotremoides, Gassicurtia rhizocarpoides, Hypotrachyna maculata, Lecanora hypofusca, Maronina saxicola, and Myriostigma xanthonicum. In addition, 194 species are reported for the first time from Bahia, 15 of which were not known from Brazil before. Placynthiella oligotropha, which was abundant on soil in a rather dry forest without any other accompanying lichens, is a new record for the southern hemisphere.
