2017 - Lichens of Ireland

The list of lichens in the database is essentially of those found in Ireland, however many of these are found worldwide, especially in temperate areas such as North America and New Zealand and Europe north of the Alps.

This list is open to expansion; simply request a species for addition (and send us a photograph and description if possible) and we will place it in the listing. The maps can also be extended to an area you are interested in, just send us the details of the region.

Species recorded in Ireland are found in the www.lichens.ie web site.
