Steinia geophana is very similar to Sarcosagium campestre in its ecology – both occur in a wide range of substrates and habitats, both commonly associate with non-lichenized green algae and the extent of their lichenization is unclear. The species has been frequently recorded mainly during the last two decades. It is quite common in various forest types containing sufficient amounts of dead wood. Additionally, it is an early colonizer of bare soil on anthropogenic stands with low competition from vascular plants (e. g., sludge ponds).taxonomic classification:
