A pioneer coloniser of wet rocks in small watercourses – especially those threading through long-established woodlands – V. denudata has a smooth, often translucent, pale green to brown thallus and rather sharp, conical black-tipped perithecia showing where the thallus cover has begun to erode. With a mean length of 21.5µm, the spores are on the small side. In Ireland, the species is local.
