Fructicose and foliose lichen were more sentitive for environment quality changes so that they could be seen in natural habitat like Bibi Hill, Merapi Mount National Garden (TNGM). Bibi Hill was one of conservation zone in Indonesia and had high potential of biodiversity . The aim of this research was learning biodiversity of fructicose and foliose lichen in Bibi Hill so that could give more information of biodiversity in Indonesia. The metod this research was exploration metod, sourrounding the hill abaout 2,5 km. Lichen specimen founded was made herbarium for indentification, based on morfology, anatomy, spot test and microcrystal formation test. The result this research were founded 12 species form fructicose lichen, including 7 genus and 3 familia (Parmeliaceae,Physciaceae, and Coccocarpiaceae). Foliose lichen were founded 12 species form 5 genus and 4 familia (Parmeliaceae, Alectoriaceae, Ramalinaceae and Cladoniaceae). All of the Familia founded was included in Ordo Lecanorales.

Keywords: lichen, fructicose, foliose, diversity.
