RODRIGUEZ RODRIGUEZ, Eric F et al. Catalogue of the lichenobiota of La Libertad region, Peru. Arnaldoa [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.2, pp.497-522. ISSN 1815-8242.

We provide a catalogue of 192 species of lichens, arranged in 28 families and 60 genera existing in La Libertad Region, Peru. The study was based on a review of material preferably deposited in the Herbarium Truxillense of the National University of Trujillo (HUT), the determination of specialists, and the contrast with species documented in official studies of lichenobiota of this region. The material examined for each species includes the geographical distribution according to provinces and altitudes, and a representative specimen marked by the name and number of the main collector, followed by the acronym of the herbarium where it is deposited, as well as the common name if it exists. The information presented will serve to continue with taxonomic, ecological and environmental studies in these organisms

Keywords : lichens; distribution; provinces; La Libertad Region.
