Click on the heading above to display two Excel spreadsheets listing the lichens of Wisconsin. The list itself displays the binomial name and authority, notes, and the source citations. Click on the link below the list labeled "sources" to display the citations. This list combines the work of Thomson, Lay, Brodo, Bennett and others. As these pages change from time to time, either refresh your browser's cache or re-load to view the most recent pages.

I maintain this list for new records, extirpations, nomenclatural changes, splits, and mis-identifications. This list is different from the one on Lichens of the World because I do not include synonyms. Nomenclature is current according to Esslinger's North American Lichen Checklist.
