Abstract: Lichenicolous fungi live exclusively on lichens, most commonly as host-specific parasites, but also as broad-spectrum pathogens, saprotrophs or commensals. Over 1800 species have been described throughout the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota, and estimates are that 3000 species will eventually be described (Lawrey and Diederich, 2003). The great majority (over 95%) of described lichenicolous fungi belong to the ascomycetes, representing 19 orders and seven classes. This site contains a systematic listing of all known genera and species of lichenicolous fungi (modified from Lawrey and Diederich, 2003), isolated strains available in major culture collections (with collection accession numbers), and published sequences (with GenBank accession numbers). Literature references are provided for each genus (from Lawrey and Diederich, 2003, with updates). [Information of the supplier]
