Abstract

  The Queen Charlotte Islands, an oceanic archipelago off the west coast of British Columbia, has a rich maritime lichen flora including a number of species of Verrucaria. Two of these species appear to be new to science and are described here: V. epimaura Brodo and V. schofieldii Brodo. In addition, there are several unnamed entities that may eventually be recognized as species. To facilitate placing these new or unnamed taxa within the context of known west coast species of Verrucaria, a key including all these species is presented.
