California Lichen Catalog
This second revision of the California lichen catalog reports 1,869 taxa at species level and below (of which 58 are recognized at the level of variety, subspecies, or forma) for the state, an increase of about 295 taxa since 2006, and 565 taxa since the 1979 catalog. The number of genera is 340, an increase of 43 since 2006. The lichen flora of California includes about 35% of the 5,246 species and 52% of the 646 genera reported for the continental United States and Canada. All known references are given that cite each species as occurring in California. Synonyms are cross-referenced to the current names. Accepted names are listed first, followed by names of taxa that are either excluded or not confirmed. The bibliography includes 1158 publications pertaining to California lichens (citations through 2011, and some from 2012).
