Sclerophora farinacea (Chevall.) Chevall.

Sclerophora farinacea prefers the rough bark of old deciduous trees with higher pH. It occurs in old-growth forests as well as in parkland landscapes. In Europe, it is one of the rarest species of the genus, being extremely rare in central Europe. In the Czech Republic, there are two historical records from the valleys of the Jihlava and Oslava rivers in the Třebíč region. Recently, it has been found on the bark of Acer campestre in a riparian forest of the Ranšpurk nature reserve in southern Moravia.
