Abstract: The taxonomy, ecology, and regional distribution
of lichens in New Zealand are imperfectly
known (Galloway, 1966, 1968a, 1968b;
Martin, 1966, 1968). In surveying the scattered
literature, Galloway (1966) found that very
little work had been done on alpine lichens.
In his account he lists 150 species collected between
about 2,600 and 6,060 feet from three
sites in the Humboldt mountains, Fiordland.
Earlier, J. Scott Thomson is known to have collected
lichens from peaks in Otago and elsewhere
in the South Island (see Zahlbruckner,
1941). Philipson and Brownlie (1958) have
also recorded several species from mountains in
the environs of Cass, Canterbury. Undoubtedly
other collections have been made from alpine
regions by local and visiting collectors, but few
records have been published.
