This tiny, though abundant, grey-green crustose lichen grows widely on siliceous rocks and walls. It forms very small (0.5-2.0cm diam.) areolate thalli covered with yellow-green to pale brown discs that can coalesce to form larger patches. Common: rocks and walls, also on worked timber in remoter areas and along the coast.
