Catillaria lenticularis (Ach.) Th. Fr.

A saxicolous calciphilous species with a relatively wide ecological amplitude, characterized by red-brown to brown-black apothecia without a conspicuous margin. It grows on natural rock outcrops (mainly limestone, but more rarely also on other basic rock types) and also on anthropogenic substrates in towns (walls, grout) from lowlands to mountains. In Europe, C. lenticularis is widely distributed, with the centre of distribution in temperate regions. In the Czech Republic, it mainly occurs in limestone areas and is rare elsewhere.
