The main objective of this present study is to discuss about lichen diversity from the Doboka Reserve Forest, Hojai, Assam, India. A total of 46 species distributed in 23 genera and 13 families were numerated during the study. The two most dominated families were Graphidaceae & Pyrenulaceae, which together comprised of more than 50% of populations. Pyrenula & Graphis were the genera, which together constituted for about 22% of the total identified lichen species. Many of the identified species were reported for the first time from the particular location of Assam. The rich lichen diversity in a small forested area suggests the need to explore the area further.
