A relatively inconspicuous species, occurring in a form of black cushions composed of thin, branched, more or less cylindrical lobes. Its thalli often grow together with similarly looking populations of filamentous cyanobacteria. Lichinella stipatula occurs on natural outcrops of basic siliceous rocks, mainly serpentinites, diabases and calcareous conglomerates in the Czech Republic. Its typical microhabitats are seepage rocks. In Europe, the species has a Mediterranean-continental distribution. In central Europe and in the Czech Republic the species is rather rare. Recent Czech records come from central Bohemia and southern Moravia.taxonomic classification:
