Synopsis top ↑

The representatives of the lichen genus Relicina are revised. A key and descriptions for the 47 species are given, and the synonymy, chemistry, distribution, ecology and taxonomic affinities of each species are discussed.
Eight new species are described: Relicina dentata, R. kurandensis, R. palmata, R. sabahensis, R. segregata, R. simpanii, R. stipitata and R. vinasii. In addition, Relicina niuginiensis has been placed in synonymy with R. fijiensis.
