Thelocarpon lichenicola (Fuckel) Poelt & Hafellner

A non-lichenized, widely-distributed species, quite common in wet and shaded forests and peatbogs. It grows on wood, bare soil or acidic stones. Usually associated with non-lichenized algae, which it may parasite on. Forms with narrowly cylindrical apothecia are sometimes distinguished as a distinct species, T. strasseri.
