A rare boreal microlichen with a characteristic ecology: it typically grows in rather moist microhabitats on relatively dry decaying wood of snags, stumps and lying trunks of mostly conifers. Rarely, it may pass also on a bark at tree basis. So far, the species has been reported from less than ten localities in the Czech Republic. Most findings were made in moist coniferous forests of the Šumava Mts, particularly from mountain and wet spruce forests.
