Squamarina lentigera is a conspicuous and well-recognizable species, associated with exposed calcareous soil in the warmest areas of the Czech Republic. It shares its ecology and often co-occurs with Fulgensia fulgens. It used to occur at various localities in south Moravia, less commonly also in central Bohemia and České Středohoří hills (as summarized by Suza (1937 and 1942). During the 20th century it declined due to the absence of suitable management of its localities (e. g., pasture) and subsequent overgrowing of the exposed areas. Recently, it only grows in the Pálava area.
