Infrequently found species of moist forests, typically old-growth forests dominated by firs and beeches. It usually grows on soft, rather rain-protected (but it is not a rule), heavily decayed wood of conifers (most often snags and stumps). Occasionally, it passes onto a bark and roots of dead trees. The species is sparsely distributed across the Czech Republic. Most often it is reported from old-growth forests but neither records in managed forests are exceptional – usually it is the first generation planted in areas where a primeval forest used to be, with large amount of dead wood left, such as big, slowly decaying stumps.
