Not uncommon in Ireland on well-illuminated wayside and woodland trees. Often found growing with close relatives R. farinacea, R. fastigiata and R. fraxinea, but distinctly different in its narrow, pendent, single-channelled branches and overall glossy appearance. Discs common: at the tips of the branches.

Key characteristics

  • Thallus usually pendent; branches narrow, with a distinct channel down the centre
  • Glossy sheen often found intermixed with other lichens of the same family.
