Abstract

The lichens and allied fungi of Prince Edward Island have been poorly studied compared to those of other Canadian provinces. To address this knowledge gap, we made collections between 1993 and 2010 in a range of ecosystems and localities across the island. We also compiled and reviewed other collections from public and personal herbaria, as well as published reports. Based on all known records, we present the first lichen checklist for Prince Edward Island; it includes 256 species in 86 genera. Additions to the list are to be expected as there are unexplored areas and habitats on the island.
