Tuckermannopsis chlorophylla occurs mainly on acidic bark of both coniferous and deciduous trees in well-lit forests, avenues and in similar open habitats, occasionally also on wood and rarely on siliceous rocks. It is characterized by rather narrow, marginally sorediate and adscending lobes. Its colour varies from green to brown depending on light intensity. In the Czech Republic, it is relatively common from hills to mountains. It can be found in temperate and boreal zones of all the continents, except Antarctica.
