The first specialized publication on Cladoniaceae in Colombia (Sipman & Cleef 1978) treats morphology, chemistry, and ecological and spatial distribution of 6 species of the family Cladoniaceae. Afterwards a Flora Neotropica Monograph (Ahti 2000) revised and summarized all knowledge on the family for the Neotropics, including Colombia . Patterns of species richness of the Cladoniaceae in the Neotropics were analysed by Edier Soto Medina (2013). In the same year Ahti & Sipman (2013) in a Cladoniaceae volume for the Flora of the Guianas made clear that the diversity of Cladoniaceae has been underestimated.
