Biatora beckhausii (Körb.) Tuck.

Rather a rare, but probably partially overlooked epiphytic or epixylic forest species of humid forested areas. It can occur both on thin trunks and branches (sometimes already dead) and on a bark and wood of old trees. It prefers deciduous trees with acid bark. In the Czech Republic, it occurs mainly in higher elevations, reaching the highest densities in the Šumava Mountains. Two recent findings come from the Králický Sněžník Mts.
