Five Japanese species of the lichen genus Menegazzia are recorded. Menegazzia caviisidia Bjerke & P. James sp. nov. is characterized by numerous globose to dactyliform to narrowly obovate, hollow isidia, small conical perforations, and thamnolic acid as the major medullary constituent. It appears to be a rare species, so far known only from three localities on Honshu. The status of the primary species M. asahinae is elucidated. Menegazzia pedicellata Bjerke sp. nov. is a rare caperatic acid…

The genus Menegazzia (Lecanorales: Parmeliaceae) in Tasmania revisited1

With 30 species, Tasmania is a major area of species diversity in the genus Menegazzia, and seven of these are new to science: M. abscondita Kantvilas, known from Tasmania and New Zealand, and M. tarkinea Kantvils, all endemic to Tasmania, which suggests they are products of long-distance dispersal.
