Abstract

Two hundred and seven lichen species are newly reported from Sri Lanka, eight of which were previously thought to be endemic in India; 91 species are new to the Indian subcontinent, and four to Asia, and three are described here as new to science: Astrothelium nitidulum which has 7-septate ascospores with diamond-shaped lumina, mostly simple ascomata in shiny olive pseudostromata and an inspersed hamathecium; Heterodermia queensberryi which is similar to Heterodermia propagulifera but with a corona of lobules around the apothecia; and Malmidea papillosa, which is similar to Malmidea granifera but has regular warts and lacks medulla in the excipulum.
