Dr Hitch has been recording the Lichen Flora of Suffolk for many years and has already collected over 38,000 records from about 50% of the tetrads in the County. Many of the records are from churchyards, but woodlands and old parks have also been covered. All records have been logged on RECORDER.

Further information on recording and identification can be found on the British Lichen Society website
