Scytinium schraderi is a minute cyanolichen, characterized by brown, glossy and wrinkled lobes. It is typically found on calcareous soil associated with bryophytes, not rarely also colonizes surrounding rocks. It requires disturbed stands with very limited competition of vascular plants, such as rocky steppes, grasslands or walls. The species is more common in southern Europe, gradually diminishing towards the north. In central Europe and in the Czech Republic, it is scattered, and occurs mainly in limestone areas.
