Abstract

Three lichen taxa viz. - Aspicilia asiatica (H. Magn.) Yoshim., Lecanora subcarnea (Sw.) Ach. var. soralifera H. Magn., and Thelidium minutulum Korb. were identified as new to Turkey as a result of a lichenological survey in the Bitlis and Mus regions Turkey. In addition, Lecanora subcarnea var. soralifera is also new to Asia. A detail taxonomic account, notes on known distribution, substrates, and chemistry under each taxon and comparisons with morphologically similar taxa are furnished under each taxon.
