Scytinium intermedium is a small foliose cyanolichen, similar to S. gelatinosum, but with smaller lobes. It is a terricolous species, preferring calcareous soil in loose low grasslands, rarely also colonizes mossy tree bark. It is very rare in the Czech Republic and it is known from only six localities (Malíček et al. 2014, Vondrák et al. 2022): Český kras (Bohemian karst), Křivoklát region (Týřov, Stříbrný luh), Hrubý Jeseník Mts, near Třebíč and Brno. In the Křivoklát region, it locally forms extensive populations among mosses on calcium-enriched spilite rocks and shallow basic soil.
