Four species are reported new for the lichen flora of southern Africa:  Bryoria fuseescens (Gyeln.) Brodo & D. Hawksw.,  B. motykae (D. Hawksw.) Brodo & D. Hawksw.,  Cetraria chlorophylla (Humb.) Vain, and  Platismatia glauca (L.) Culb. & Culb. (Parmeliaceae), found at high elevations in Natal and south-west Cape.  B. fuscescens, B. motykae and  P. glauca were previously known from a few localities, also at high elevations, in east Africa. The genus Cetraria s. str. was previously unknown on the African continent.
