Leprocaulon quisquiliare (Leers) M. Choisy

This lichen is typically found on various types of siliceous rocks, from acidic ones (such as granite) to basal ones (such as diabase). Besides, L. quisquiliare often grows at bases of oaks and on soil. It seeks partly shaded habitats with a stable microclimate. In the Czech Republic, the species prefers river valleys in warmer regions. Its distribution in the country is rather local, but in suitable habitats, it may be very abundant. The lichen is widespread and relatively common in Europe.
