The most abundant representative of the genus in Europe, which is highly variable phenotypically and genetically. Its differentiation from other Sarcogyne species is rather complicated and based on several characters (see Knudsen et al. 2023). It grows on sunny to lightly shaded surfaces of natural calcareous rocks and anthropogenic substrates (e.g. concrete, plaster). It also belongs to pioneer lichens that colonize recently formed substrates. In the Czech Republic it is relatively abundant from lowlands to mountains.
