A species resembling Parmeliopsis hyperopta, but differs in reproduction by isidia. It grows on wood and bark of conifers and birches, rarely also on siliceous rocks. In the Czech Republic, the lichen is sparse, distributed from lowlands to mountains. It can be found mostly in mountain spruce and boggy forests and in relic pine forests. The species range covers the temperate and boreal zone of the Northern Hemisphere plus mountain exclaves in eastern Africa and south-eastern Australia.taxonomic classification:
