Folia Cryptogamica Estonica http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE <p><em>Folia Cryptogamica Estonica</em> (FCE) is an international journal which welcomes papers on biodiversity, taxonomy and ecology of fungi, lichens, bryophytes and algae from contributors anywhere in the world. Submitted manuscripts must not be published before and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts should be in English.

The documented lichen biota comprises 349 species, including 313 lichens, 30 lichenicolous fungi and 6 non-lichenized saprobic fungi. <em>Endococcus exerrans</em> and <em>Lichenopeltella coppinsii</em> are reported for the first time for Russia; <em>Cercidospora stenotropae</em>, <em>Erythricium aurantiacum</em>, <em>Flavoplaca limonia</em>, <em>Lecidea haerjedalica</em>, and <em>Myriospora myochroa</em> for European Russia; <em>Flavoplaca oasis</em>, <em>Intralichen christiansenii</em>, <em>Nesolechia fusca</em>, and <em>Myriolecis zosterae</em> for North-Western European Russia; and <em>Arthrorhaphis aeruginosa</em>, <em>Calogaya pusilla</em>, and <em>Lecidea auriculata</em> subsp. <em>auriculata</em> are new for Leningrad Region. The studied lichen biota is moderately rich and diverse, but a long history of human activity likely caused its transformation, especially the degradation of forest lichen biota. The most valuable habitats for lichens in Moshchny Island are seashore and dune communities which definitely deserve protection.</p> </div> </div> </div> Irina S. Stepanchikova, Dmitry E.
