A saxicolous lichen growing on various types of siliceous rocks – from basic vulcanites, serpentinites to acid granite rocks. According to current knowledge, it is a thermophilic species of lower or middle elevations. Until recently, it was not commonly distinguished and its occurrence has not been sufficiently studied. It is known from several European countries and Russia (Paukov et al. 2017). In the Czech Republic, it probably occurs scattered in warmer areas. In the field, it can be easily confused, for example, with the Circinaria caesionerea. They also commonly share localities.
