Records are presented for 99 lichens, 15 lichenicolous fungi, and a parasitic and a saprophytic fungus. Llimoniella groenlandiae is reported for the first time from Germany, whereas Rimularia gyrizans is refound in Germany after more than 80 years. Newly reported for Saxony-Anhalt are 80 species, including 13 lichenicolous fungi. Particularly notable are the rarely reported Absconditella delutula, Frutidella pullata, Ochrolechia arborea, Placidium pilosellum, Rhizocarpon carpaticum, Rimularia gibbosa, Sagedia simoensis, Trapeliopsis glaucolepidea, Vezdaea aestivalis and the extremely rare Thelocarpon superellum. Remarkable macrolichens recorded include Cladonia polycarpoides, C. peziziformis, Flavoparmelia soredians, Hypotrachyna revoluta, Melanohalea laciniatula, Oxneria ulophyllodes, Parmelia pinnatifida, Pseudephebe minuscula, Punctelia borreri, Umbilicaria vellea, Usnea barbata, U. flavocardia, U. glabrata, U. substerilis and Xanthoparmelia mougeotii. New to Lower Saxony are Bacidia subincompta, Epigloea urosperma and Pertusaria pupillaris. 23 species were rediscovered in Saxony-Anhalt mostly after a very long time, including the following which were considered extinct in the Red List: Anaptychia ciliaris, Arthonia vinosa, Bacidina egenula, Biatora efflorescens, Icmadophila ericetorum, Lecanactis abietina, Lecanora subcarnea and Lecidea tesselata var. tesselata. Bacidia beckhausii and Frutidella pullata have been rediscovered in Lower Saxony. Remarkable second records for Saxony-Anhalt are Gregorella humida, Polyblastia philaea and Synalissa ramulosa. Lichenomphalia umbellifera is recorded for the first time from the lowlands of Saxony-Anhalt.
