Sipman, H. J. M. & Raus, T. 2015. Lichens and lichenicolous fungi from the island of Chios (Aegean Sea, Greece). — Herzogia 28: 496–519.
A 3-week fieldwork on the island of Chios, East Aegean Islands, Greece revealed the presence of 381 lichenized and 9 lichenicolous fungi. These are the highest published figures for any Greek island apart from Crete and give an indication how many species can be expected on other islands. 33 species are recorded for the first time from Greece, some of which are probably favoured by special habitat conditions, viz. the occurrence of metal-rich rock and the above-average cold winter climate of the NE Aegean. Most species have wide distribution ranges, but nine species are range-restricted in Greece, the southern Balkans and adjacent Turkey.
