Lichens, lichenized fungi
The previous listings of Iowa lichens were compiled in the l890's and early 1900's and represented collections primarily from three Iowa counties. In the intervening years, several listings of local lichens have been published. The lichen flora of Iowa as presented here consists of 74 genera with 263 species and is a compilation of previously reported species, of herbarium specimens, and of observations made by the authors. A notation of habitat follows each entry in addition to the general listing of lichens found in similar habits summarized in the discussion.
