This maritime species of damp siliceous rock has a pale brown to white superficial thallus with conspicuous perithecia (with involucrellum) and ellipsoid spores in the middle range for Verrucaria species (19–25 x 9–11.5µm). It is apt to be confused with V. muralis (see elsewhere) which, though lacking a superficial thallus on limestone pebbles, usually has one when growing on siliceous rocks; this however is often poorly developed by comparison and the spores narrower. The species is poorly known and consequently records are few.
