The lichen species Diploschistes actinostomus (Graphidaceae, Ostropales) collected from Mt. Tai was reported as a new record to Shandong Province. It was characterized by saxicolous habit, crustose thallus, subimmersed perithicoid apothecia, 8spored ascus; and brownish muriform ascospores (20~30 μm × 12.5~15 μm in size). This species with its genus Diploschistes and family Graphidaceae is the first report from Shandong Province, which fills the blank of the records of Shandong lichens and is also important for flora study of Graphidaceae .

Key words: Ostropales, taxonomy, lichenized Ascomycota, new record
