This cyanolichen is easily confused with other members of the S. fuliginosa complex. It prefers oceanic areas. In continental parts of Europe, it can only be found in humid microstands in rainfall-rich areas. It grows on mossy trunks of old trees and on mossy rocks. In central Europe, it is very rare mainly due to its strict microclimatic requirements and its sensitivity to air pollution. The last records in the Czech Republic are from humid serpentine rocks near Raškov in Nízký Jeseník Mts (Suza 1922) and from Jezerní stěna in Černé jezero glacial cirque in the Šumava Mts, where it was epiphytic (Hilitzer 1926). Historically, it was also known from the Krkonoše Mts, Hrubý Jeseník Mts and near Tišnov.
