Within the genus, it is a lichen with a relatively narrow ecological amplitude, growing mainly on bare mineral soil. It can be referred to as a species of initial succession stages on acidic sandy substrates. Typical are (semi) anthropogenic habitats such as sand pits, edges of forest trails, cuts of railways and ski slopes, dumps, heaps, coal ash basins. In the Czech Republic, this taxon was recorded sporadically, scattered in about ten localities in the western part and one (more than 50 years old) locality in South Moravia. It is a widespread but little documented amphiboreal taxon.
