A lichen similar to A. gelatinosa. The characteristic trait are the sterile black globules formed on a grey-green thallus, which is composed of miniature finger-like lobules or granules. Perithecia are often absent, making the species very inconspicuous. Agonimia globulifera grows on plant debris and bryophytes on calcareous substrates (grasslands, rocky outcrops), on bare calcareous soil, but also on bark of tree bases. Most localities are at lower elevations, but in some places, the species expands into high mountains. Its European distribution is not known in detail, the species is probably widespread but common only locally. In the Czech Republic, the lichen occurs relatively sparsely in karst areas and in a few other localities on a basic bedrock (e.g. diabases, phyllites and serpentinites).taxonomic classification:
