    Abstract

    Sixty-six species are recorded for the first time from the Fijian archipelago. Diagnostic features and distribution areas are given for each species reported here. The genera Bactrospora, Badimia, Baeomyces, Calenia, Coccotrema, Dibaeis, Gyalectidium, Gyalideopsis, Lecanora, Lepraria, Leucodecton, Megalospora, Melanotopelia, Pannaria, Peltigera, Pyxine, strigula, Thalloloma, and Thelotrema are reported here from Fiji for the first time. The majority of new records belong to pan- or palaeo-tropical species, in addition to cosmopolitan, Australasian and Indo-Pacific elements.
