A species characteristic by its yellow thallus, immersed apothecia and 1-septate ascospores. It is a boreal-montane lichen growing mostly on hard wood of conifers (or less frequently of oaks). Beside the natural habitats is occurs also on worked timber (e.g. on fences). In central Europe it is more common only in the Alps and Carpathians, otherwise it is a rare species. From the Czech Republic, there are historical reports of its occurrence in the Šumava Mts, southern Bohemia (Tibell 1971, Liška & Pišút 1995 and others) and recent unpublished data from the Šumava Mts.
