A tiny epiphytic Scytinium, easy to identify, characteristic by numerous apothecia and thallus forming rounded rosettes or cushions. It grows on nutrient-rich bark of old trees (such as Salix, Acer platanoides, Ulmus), mainly in humid deciduous forests. It occurs in most of Europe but recently belongs to very rare lichens. There are only historical records of the species, from less than ten localities in the Czech Republic, in particular from southern Moravia (Černohorský et al. 1956, Pišút 1968).
