The Lichens of Australia, have not received much attention
from botanists, either in Europe or here. New Zealand has
had its Lichen flora examined by many of the most experienced
specialists. Tasmania also has had nearly the same advantages.
In Australia no special essay has ever been devoted
to the subject. A complete Lichen flora for the whole
continent is what we would not expect. It would be
unreasonable even to look for this for one of the colonies;
but it is a matter of surprise that no one as yet has tried to determine and catalogue the ordinary species. What Robert
Brown did was to catalogue those he found on the coast, and
those obtained in the few hurried journeys into the interior, which were made by himself and others in his time. Also included is Dr Nylander's arrangement “A few Queensland lichens”
- Dr. Nylander
has himself arranged many Australian, Tasmanian, and New
Zealand species
