HAUCK, M., TøNSBERG, T., MAYRHOFER, H. & BREUSS, O. 2013. Lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi new to Kazakhstan. — Herzogia 26: 103–116.
Although there is a published lichen flora of Kazakhstan, the diversity of lichen-forming and lichenicolous fungi of this country is incompletely known. Here we publish records of 41 species of lichens and 2 species of lichenicolous fungi for the first time from Kazakhstan. All collections are from the Kazakh Altai and the Saur Mountains, East Kazakhstan. Caloplaca monacensis, Immersaria iranica, Lepraria elobata, L. rigidula and Parmelina pastillifera are new for the wider surroundings of Kazakhstan, as they have neither been found in Central Asia so far, nor in southern Siberia. Several species are new to Central Asia, but were already known from the nearby Siberia.
