Abstract

Seven species of Micarea prasina group were found during the lichen study in the northern part of the Kaliningrad Region. M. pseudomicrococca is reported for the first time for Russia, 6 other species are new to the Kaliningrad Region. Morphological, anatomical, and chemical features of the species are discussed.
