Nine species of the cyanobacterial lichen families Lichinaceae and Gloeoheppiaceae are reported from South Korea, all of which are new to the Korean Peninsula. One specimen is identified as a possibly undescribed species of Pyrenopsis. Problems in species taxonomy, distribution patterns such as unusual long-distance disjunctions and floristic affinities are discussed.
