Abstract
Our knowledge of the Chatham Islands lichenized mycobiota is steadily growing from the 48 species recognized from the islands by Galloway (2007). Since 2008 there has been a concerted effort to collect lichens from the islands by visiting lichenologists resulting in a current, as yet unpublished, listing for the islands of c.352 lichen taxa (de Lange unpubl. data). Along the way a new, seemingly endemic lichen, Lecanora kohu, has been described from the Chathams (Printzen et al. 2017), a fitting replacement for the previous assumed endemic Caloplaca maculata (Galloway 2004) which has since been found on the coastline south of Dunedin, New Zealand (de Lange 2019).
