A sterile yellow lichen with a leprose thallus, occurring in well-preserved forests, most often on old trees. It prefers oaks, but may be found also on other wooden plants (maples, etc.), less often even on bare tree snags. Outside the Czech Republic, it is common in silver fir forests. Alike members of the genus Lepraria, C. candelaris seeks for shady, rain-protected places. It is widespread throughout Europe, but sparse to rare in the Czech Republic. Only in southern Bohemia the species is relatively common. Chrysothrix candelaris is one of the environment-sensitive lichens; it avoids eutrophic areas, localities damaged by acid rain, and intensively managed regions.taxonomic classification:
