Scytinium pulvinatum is the most common species of the genus. Its thallus forms compact cushions with deeply laciniate lobe ends. Primarily, it colonizes bryophytes on calcareous rocks, at tree bases or on soil, sometimes also rocks directly. It is found on both forest and open stands, often also on anthropogenic localities all over Europe. In limestone areas, the lichen is usually abundant. Majority of older records of S. lacerum and S. lichenoides from the Czech Republic might actually refer to S. pulvinatum.taxonomic classification: most frequented synonyms:Leptogium pulvinatum
