Distinctive orange Xanthoria, in contrast to the similar and common X. parietina, occasionally forms short flat lobes and globose isidia in the central parts of the thallus. Apothecia are rare. It is strictly saxicolous on basic rocks (limestone, diabase), primarily distributed in the Mediterranean. Historically not known from the Czech Republic. First record published in 1998 from the Křivoklát region, specifically Stará Ves village (on a diabase rock) and Křivoklát (on a brick wall). Later also found on Trosky castle ruins in the Český ráj region.
