Abstract: This checklist is based primarily on voucher specimens from Dick Harris' survey of Bartholomew's Cobble (1981); the 2nd Tuckerman Lichen Workshop (1995); the 1998 and 2012 Andrews Forays; Phil May's survey of the summit of Mt Everett (1999); the 2010 and 2012 Berkshire BioBlitzes; and Scott LaGreca's survey of Windsor Jambs (2012). Nearly half of the vouchers used for this checklist were collected by Elisabeth Lay, mostly in the 1990s (now deposited at NY), which she graciously made available to us. Redetermined vouchers from Burnham's ''Lichens of the Berkshire Hills, Massachusetts'' (1918), deposited at CUP, provide a critical, historical component to this checklist. Almost all the voucher specimens used for this checklist are housed in the following herbaria: CUP, FH, MIN, MSC, NY, SRP, and the private herbaria of Robert Dirig and Scott LaGreca.

R. C. Harris 13525, R. C. Harris s.n. [NY] from Bartholomew's Cobble.
Scott LaGreca 2064 (P. stellaris) serves as a voucher for this record because the P. stellaris is mixed with some P. millegrana.; Elisabeth Lay 94-1073 [CNALH] , Elisabeth Lay 95-1150 [CNALH] , Elisabeth Lay 93-0190 [CNALH] , Elisabeth Lay 95-1151 [CNALH]
The 3 MIN vouchers were TLC'd and found to contain usnic acid only (870133 and 870135) and usnic/sekikaic/homosekikaic acids (870136). The latter is a rare chemotype of R. americana (LaGreca 1997).; Williams s.n. [MIN] , Williams s.n. [MIN] , Williams s.n. [MIN]
This record is based on a map of R. culbersoniorum in LaGreca's Ph.D. thesis (1997). The voucher specimen is deposited in either NY or US. Identification is tentative based on the chemistry of this specimen (Usnic and stenosporic acids).
