The white granular thallus of this crustose lichen produces numerous pale brown, C+ orange discs with a chalky rim which characterises it. It is a species of acid rock near the sea over which nutrient-rich water runs or percolates. L. fugiens differs in the yellowy thallus and darker brown discs. In Ireland, the species has been recorded from Counties Kerry, Cork, Galway and Wicklow.
