This upland, terricolous species has prominent, red, terminal discs born on podetia (stalks) hung with numerous peeling squamules (scales). The podetia can be small and stumpy or longer to 4cm tall. It occurs in hilly areas on peaty soil and decaying tree stumps and amongst boulders and scree. It is rather uncommon throughout Ireland where there is suitable habitat.
