Acarospora intermedia is a wide-spread species in Europe extending through eastern Europe to Asia (Siberia), occurring in full sun on sandstone, granite, basalt, and Ca-enriched siliceous rock at elevations usually below 500 m. It was recently reported new for the Czech Republic from several localities in Bohemia and Moravia (Knudsen & Kocourková 2020).
It has small brown areoles, usually less than 1 mm wide, with solitary apothecia usually 0.2–0.5 mm wide in an elevated thalline margin, the subtending areoles sometimes a different brown color from the thalline margin. The thallus is usually contiguous. It differs from A. veronensis especially in having elevated apothecia and is indistinguishable when immature apothecia are immersed.
