A species conspicuous by its orange-pruinose apothecia and pycnidia. However, it is often found only in the pycnidial stage. In the Czech Republic, it occurs purely on beech in old-growth forests from middle to high elevations. It prefers old or dying trees with higher bark pH. Abroad, it is known also from several other woody plants and even rocks. It is a rare species reported only from the Šumava Mts, Novohradské hory Mts, Český les Mts, Brdy Hills and Podyjí National Park.
