A tiny microlichen from the taxonomically challenging M. micrococca group characterised by white to grey apothecia on a rather dark thallus. This relatively recently described species grows on wood and bark of both coniferous and deciduous trees. So far, it is known only from a few European countries. The number of so far unpublished, but molecularly confirmed findings suggest, M. czarnotae is a common forest lichen in the Czech Republic.
