A census of the fruticose, foliose and squamulose lichens, also referred to as "macrolichens", was carried out on Mount
Wellington, Tasmania, between November 1980 and December 1985. A total of 95 taxa was found, including 32 taxa
of Cladia, Cladina and Cladonia. This contrasts with the findings of a recent survey of macrolichens in Tasmanian
rainforests, which reported only eight species from those genera. Mount Wellington had fewer species of Collema,
Menegazzia, Pseudocyphellaria and Sphaerophorus. Thirty-seven species of macrolichens were common to both survey
areas. Ramalea cochleata is reported from Tasmania for the first time.
