Scytinium gelatinosum has shiny brown wrinkled lobes and is usually fertile. Typically, it grows among bryophytes on calcareous soil and rocks and also on tree bases. It occurs at various elevations in open habitats, including anthropogenic, such as quarries, or in well-preserved forests. It is distributed all over Europe, but only locally abundant.
Historically, the species was scattered in the Czech Republic, recorded as the species or subspecies sinuatum (cf. Vězda & Liška 1999), but its distribution is little known. There are only about five recent records. Historical collections may relate to a very similar species S. intermedium.taxonomic classification: most frequented synonyms:Leptogium gelatinosum
