Lecanora albella prefers natural deciduous forests in middle and higher elevations. It typically grows in older and primeval forests. The species occurs on different woody plants, but most data comes from beech. It is distributed mainly in Europe and North America. It is rare in the Czech Republic – findings are more abundant only in the Šumava Mts. During the field research, it can easily be mistaken for more common species as L. carpinea and L. leptyrodes.taxonomic classification:
