Sclerophora amabilis (Tibell) Tibell

Sclerophora amabilis is quite a conspicuous but little-known species. It resembles S. pallida but has darker stalks and smaller ascospores. S. amabilis grows on wood and torsos of deciduous trees in old-growth forests. More rarely, it can also be found on the bark of old deciduous trees. In the Czech Republic, it is only known from four localities, specifically in old-growth forests in the Český les and Šumava Mts. In central Europe, it has only been recorded in the Czech Republic and Germany.
