       This study provides information about the classification of lichens in the village of (Al-Zaheem), which is located in areas of Jabal Al-Akhdar during the year 2023, and to identify the swarms on which lichens grow. Also, the soil surface and calcareous rocks have been classified into three kinds: leafy, dendritic and crusty groups. We were able to identify 6 families, namely (Teloschistales, Cladoniaceae, Rmalinaceae, Acarosporaceae, Lacanoraceae and Thelotremataceae) and nine genera, which are Ramalina sinensis, Cladonia foliacea, Cladania rangiferina, Cladania fimbriata, Xantaria parietina, Diposchistes ocllatus , Lecanara muralis, Acarosparq thamnin and Caloplaca aurantia, and this study will serve as a starting point for identifying other types of lichens in different places.
