Eleven species of lichenicolous fungi (Cercidospora caudata, Dactylospora homoclinella, Endococcus pseudocarpus, Lichenodiplis lichenicola, Phaeospora rimosicola, Polycoccum marmoratum, Pyrenidium actinellum, Scoliciosporum intrusum, Toninia episema, Unguiculariopsis groenlandiae, and Verrucaria aspiciliicola) and three taxa of lichenized fungi (Aspicilia cheresina var. microspora, Caloplaca latzelii, and Melanolecia transitoria) are reported for the first time from Turkey. An additional species, Lecanora marginata, is confirmed from Turkey. Comments on their habitats and substrata and a short diagnosis are provided for each taxon.
