Sixty-six species belonging to the order Peltigerales are reported from Bolivia. Four species, Coccocarpia gallaicoi, C. microphyllina, Lobariella spathulifera and L. subcrenulata, are new to the Southern Hemisphere and Coccocarpia adnata is new to South America. 29 taxa are recorded for the first time in Bolivia. Several other taxa are reported for the first time from contemporary localities. The taxonomic placement of specimens lacking secondary metabolites within Peltigera ulcerata is supported by analyses of ITS nu-rDNA sequences. As a result we found that P. ulcerata is chemically more variable than previously reported. Notes on the habitat and general distribution of all species are presented, with taxonomic remarks provided for some taxa.
