Fellhaneropsis vezdae (Coppins & P. James) Sérus. & Coppins

A pioneer species, usually found in pycnidial stage. It grows mainly on shaded tree bases and on lower thin dying twigs. Besides, it may be found also on slowly decaying wood, needles, old polypores, dying bryophytes and macrolichens. It usually occurs in humid forests, both in the natural and even in the managed ones. However, more often it is reported from old-growth forests. The lichen may appear even in relatively species-poor communities, affected by air pollution. In microclimaticaly suitable habitats, it belongs to relatively common species, which, however, easily escapes the attention. Fellhaneropsis vezdae is rare or entirely missing in drier regions and highly eutrophicated a­reas.
