A common and in the fruiting stage well recognisable species. It has a wide ecological amplitude, but most often occurs on exposed acid soil (preferably sandy or peat soil), hummus and rocks. Frequently it is present, for example, on uprooted trees, where it sometimes passes even to exposed roots. Often it can be found on siliceous stones (e.g. those shaded by forest) or on partly shaded sandstone rocks. Its occurrence on decaying wood and exposed roots is not an exception. Sporadically it can be seen also on anthropogenic substrates, such as on asphalt of old little-used forest roads. Baeomyces rufus is a cosmopolitan species and in the Czech Republic occurs from lowlands to mountains. It is rare only in the warmest and driest parts of the country.taxonomic classification:
