In order to recognize the species diversity of lichen genus Hypogymnia in China, and to explore its chemical and genetic resources in the near future, systematic taxonomic study on this group based on morphological and chemical methods was carried out. A lichen species, Hypogymnia incurvoides, widely distributed in China, was reported and described in the present paper. It was characterized by hollow and pinnatebranched lobes with lipshaped soralia, few holes at lower surface and containing physodalic acid in medulla. Previously, this species has only been found and recorded in Russia. Therefore, this report confirmed its distribution in China for the first time, increased the records of Chinese lichen species, and updated the world distribution information of Hypogymnia incurvoides. The voucher specimens in this study are deposited in the Lichen Section, Herbarium of Mycology, Academia Sinica (HMASL).
