Taxonomical revisions and new findings led to some additions to the lichen floras of the Northern German federal states Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Schleswig-Holstein, which are also relevant for the German checklist. We comment on records of 19 lichenized, two lichenicolous and one saprophytic fungus. Amandinea lecideina is reported from Germany for the first time after more than 50 years. Trimmatothelopsis versipellis (syn. Acarospora amphibola) is treated as a species distinct from T. smaragdula with a strong preference for coastal habitats. The following species were added to the lichen flora of the federal state Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Caloplaca maritima, C. phlogina, Gregorella humida, Illosporiopsis christiansenii, Lecanora persimilis, L. zosterae, Micarea byssacea, M. micrococca, Porina leptalea and Scoliciosporum gallurae. New to Schleswig-Holstein are Micarea botryoides and Polyblastia dermatodes.
