Abstract

A collection of Hong Kong lichens in the Farlow Herbarium (FH) resulting from the United States North Pacific Exploration Expedition (1853-1856), and mainly collected by Charles Wright, has been examined with regards to two recently published papers, 12 species new to Hong Kong and almost all of the 46 species listed pre-date the earliest first records for Hong Kong. A new microthelioid lichen, Distothelia isthmospora Aptroot gen. et sp. nov., is described and a new combination, Pyrrhospora chlorophnia (Tuck.) Aptroot & Seaward comb. nov., is proposed.
