Sclerophora coniophaea is a boreal-montane lichen associated with the bark of old deciduous trees, more rarely also coniferous, or even with naked wood. It is rare in central Europe, occurring mainly in old-growth forests of mountain and sub-mountain areas. In the Czech Republic, it is currently only known from the Diana nature reserve in the Český les Mts and the Smrčina massif in the Šumava Mts. A single historical collection comes from the Žákova hora Hill in the Žďárské vrchy Highlands from the beginning of the 20th century.
