Ten species in the lichen family Pannariaceae were identified based on the examination of Taiwanese collections housed in the National Museum of Nature and Science, Japan. Among them, seven species are new records to Taiwan: Fuscopannaria ahlneri, F. dispersa, F. sorediata, Kroswia gemmascens, Pannaria asahinae, P. rubiginosa and Parmeliella pannosa. Their morphology, ecology, and phytogeography are discussed. Vahliella leucophae was deleted from the Taiwan list of Pannariaceae lichens.
