Abstract


Based on an examination of 360 herbarium specimens of the genus Lepraria, this study deals with their morphology, secondary chemistry, habitat requirements and distribution in Belarus. Nine taxa have been accepted, of which L. ecorticata, L. finkii and L. rigidula are new to the country. L. incana appears to be the commonest species in the country (48% of the studied specimens).
