ABSTRACT
The paper lists 137 species of lichens from the Kobbefjord area in West Greenland. Of these, 125 species were recorded for the first time. The lichen vegetation forms mosaics of epiphytic species, snow patch species and species occurring in different types of dwarf shrub heaths and on rocks. The saxicolous lichen flora varies from a fairly moist to a dry, wind-exposed type. Nitrophilous lichens occur more or less scattered at the locality.
