A Rinodina with granular coralloid to squamulose thallus, resembling the unrelated species Protoparmelia hypotremella. From similar lichens, it is distinguished based on the presence of pannarin in the thallus (Pd+ orange). Apothecia are rare.
It occurs on deciduous tree bark, mainly oaks, in open forests or on solitary trees from low to lower-montane elevations. In the Czech Republic, R. excrescens has only been collected in a couple of localities, however, its sterile thalli are probably partly overlooked. Although its distributional range covers a great part of the Northern hemisphere, it is one of the rarest epiphytic Rinodina species in Europe.
