INTRODUCTION (fragm.)
The earliest notes about lichens from Poland were printed in XVI century (Falimirz 1534, Spiczyński 1556), but concerned some taxa of medical importance {probably Cetraria islandica and Parmelia sp.) only. Two lichen species from Cladonia genus (called Muscus terrestris coralloides erectus and Muscus terrestris coralloides sea cornutus montanus) were mentioned in "Centuria plantarum circa nobile Gedanum sponte nascentium" written by N. Ölhafij (1650). Twenty one lichen species were listed in J.Ch. Wulff's and G. Reyger's books (Wulff 1750, Reyger 1764-1766). The first sensu stricto lichenological paper - "Tentamen historiae lichenum et praesertim Prussicorum" -— was published by C.G. Hagen in 1782. Reyger's and Hagen's works involved data worth consideration also today. The scientific study of lichens in Poland can be said to have started in beginning of XIX century, mainly in the SW part of country (Lower Silesia and Sudety Mts). Two pans of "The Polish lichenological bibliography" by Fałynowicz (1983, 2003) comprise the review of lichenological papers referring to Poland area.
The first catalogue of Polish lichens (Tobolewski 1965) comprised 1198 lichenized species. A key to Polish lichens (Nowak & Tobolewski 1975) which was published ten years later contains data of 1446 lichen taxa reported from Poland and notes about further 209 species probably growing in the country. The second checklist of Polish lichens (Fattynowicz 1993) included 1500 lichen species and 119 lichenicolous and allied fungi.
In the present list, 1768 accepted species from 357 genera are presented. Among them, 1554 species from 273 genera are lichenized and 214 species from 94 genera — lichenicolous and non-lichenized. Besides, 160 infraspecific taxa (subspecies and varietas) are listed.
In this checklist 47 species which erroneously reported from Poland are mentioned.
