An inconspicuous, usually sterile, sorediate-blastidiate lichen, forming a brown crust similar to Placynthiella dasaea. It grows on smooth bark of deciduous trees (mainly beeches), typically in natural mountain forests. The species has been described recently; holotype is from the Czech Republic. Currently, most of localities are known from the Šumava Mts but the lichen has been found also in the Beskydy Mts and the Hrubý Jeseník Mts. The species has been reported only from Europe so far, where it appears sparsely in mountain and boreal deciduous and mixed forests. Literature: Malíček J., Palice Z., Vondrák J. & Tønsberg T.
