This species has an immersed thallus and black, stalked fruiting bodies with a yellow pruina on its margin. Its typical substrate are bare snags of conifers, less frequently those of deciduous trees. Most often it occurs in open forests where a sufficient amount of dead wood is, but it may be found also around screes, in peat bogs and similar habitats. It is a boreal-montane lichen in the Czech Republic distributed mainly across foothills and mountain areas. Nowadays, it is abundant in the Šumava Mts, in other parts of the country it occurs rarely.
