Abstract The Usnea baileyi complex exhibits considerable morphological and chemical variation throughout its range, including Australia. Two chemically distinct but morphologically inseparable species are recognised in the complex for Australia. U. baileyi (Stirton) Zahlbr. is widespread in eastern Australia and is characterised by the presence of eumitrins and depsidones (especially norstictic acid). U. elata Motyka is known from only one Australian location and contains depsides (diffractaic acid being the major secondary constituent) but no eumitrins. Fourteen taxa are treated as synonyms of U. baileyi, and U. vainioi Motyka is lectotypified.
