P.L. Nimis & S. Martellos
ITALIC makes available information and resources about the lichens known to occur in Italy. It is maintained and updated by the Research Unit of Prof. Pier Luigi Nimis, at the University of Trieste (NE Italy), Dept. of Life Sciences. The main distributional data derive from the latest Checklist of the Lichens of Italy by Nimis (2016).
The present version differs from the previous ones: 1) in the fact that nomenclatural and distributional data will be continuously updated online; 2) in containing complete identification keys to some areas of the country, and to genera or groups of genera; 3) in including species descriptions (by P.L.
