Abstract Lichens of relict penguin colonies and sites affected by active penguin colonies were investigated in Victoria Land, Ross Sea sector, continental Antarctica. A total of 17 coastal sites, seven in northern and ten in southern Victoria Land, have been investigated across 7 of latitude from 71 to 78S. Altogether 40 taxa of lichens have been identified. Four of the recorded species are new to the Antarctic -- Caloplaca erecta, C. soropelta, C. tominii and Physcia tenella; two species are new to the Victoria Land area -- Lecania nylanderiana and Lecanora polytropa. The first lichen records from Beaufort Island are also provided. Data presented here expand the knowledge on the occurrence, diversity and distribution of Victoria Land lichens.
