Abstract

Eighty-five lichens and lichenicolous fungi are recorded from Gran Canaria for the first time. Eighteen species are also new to the Canary Islands, including Buelliella heppiae, Polycoccum rinodinae, Sphaerellothecium giraltiae, Zwackhiomyces heppiae and Z. solenopsorae, which are described as species new to science.
