The Miranda Naturalists’ Trust (MNT) organized a “BioBlitz” of the Miranda coast between the Taramaire and Pukorokoro/Miranda streams on the 28th of February 2013. Dan Blanchon, Rick Kooperberg, Orhan Er, Christy Reynolds and Indra Kularatne made up the lichen team for the day, with additional collections from Bruce Hayward and Peter Maddison. This article is an account of the lichen taxa we found on the day. We focused our efforts on the mangroves and shell banks to the southeast of the Miranda Shorebird Centre and the mangroves and concrete slabs in the area around the old limeworks.
