One hundred and seven epiphytic taxa, 4 epigeic taxa and 8 epilithic taxa are recorded from 17 Pinus nigra stands across its distribution area in Greece. Generally, the lichen biota is referable to a Pseudevernion community with nitrophytic elements. Caloplaca xerothermica, Lecidella subviridis and Parmelia barrenoae are new to Greece. Six species are new to Epiros, 5 species are new to Makedonia and 5 species are new to Peloponnisos. Elixia cretica is reported for the first time outside its type locality. The new combination Caloplace xerothermica (Vondrák, Arup & I.V.Frolov) S.N.Christensen is made. Studies on epiphytic lichens on Pinus nigra in Greece and neighbouring countries are discussed. Key words: azonal forests, Epiros, Makedonia, Mediterranean-montane lichens, Peloponnisos, Pseudevernion.
