An inconspicuous crust with black perithecia and without any apparent mark of lichenization. Its occurrence is probably linked to smooth birch bark. Similar species, also growing on birch bark, are for example, Arthopyrenia analepta, Cyrtidula major and Mycomicrothelia wallrothii. Leptorhaphis epidermidis may be securely recognised by its long, thin, one-septate spores. The species is apparently locally common in Europe but in the Czech Republic, it is currently known only from the Křivoklát region, Brdy Hills and the Šumava Mts.taxonomic classification:
