Absconditella pauxilla Vězda & Vivant

Currently, the rarest member of the genus Absconditella in the Czech Republic. Collections come from relatively open areas of a wide range of natural and (semi) anthropogenic habitats, i.e. fens, dead forests, forest-free areas overgrown by shrubs, and a military bunker in a destroyed village. It has been recorded on a slowly decomposing moist coniferous wood, decomposing moss or even detritus. In other countries, an epiphytic form is known as well. Sparse findings from the Czech Republic come from the Šumava Mountains, Křivoklát and Doksy regions. Although this species has been reported only from Europe (except the Mediterranean), its distribution as a pioneer species is expected to be wider.
