A small pioneer epiphytic species with blue pigments in apothecia and subatlantic-temperate distribution. The lichen usually occurs in humid habitats on subneutral bark, usually of Sambucus (Nimis et al. 2018). In the Czech Republic, the species was reported historically only twice from the Žďárské vrchy Highlands (Kovář 1906). Latter sources listed in the Catalogue of Lichens (Vězda & Liška 1999) also refer to this locality. Herbarium vouchers were collected on old stumps and beech bark and have to be revised as the substrates not fully correspond to the usual ecology of this species.
