As part of a comprehensive taxon sampling in southern Patagonia, South America, along a latitudinal gradient from Isla Navarino (55°S) to Bariloche (41°S) saxicolous lecideoid lichen species were collected in 20 habitats, all within the subantarctic climate zone above tree line by increasing altitude to the north. Phylogenetic analyses of the closely related genera Lecidea and Porpidia revealed altogether more than ten well-supported new lineages. The most strongly supported group of 13 accessions, found at Isla Navarino solely at the ridge of Cerro Bandera is described as the new endemic species Porpidia navarina.
