Initially parasitic on other lichens establishing and spreading over Enterographa crassa, Schismatomma cretaceum, S. decolorans, S. niveum, Cresponea premnea or Lecanactis thalli. Eventually becoming independent. Thallus crustose, pale rose or pinkish, like compressed cotton wool, becoming crusty.
Pale primrose-yellow "sporodochia" (cushion-like groups of condiophores and associated conidia) are scattered across the thallus.
Both thallus and sporodochia are C+ Red (fleeting).

Note: The BLS database (and hence the NBN Gateway - see map below) holds an unverified record from St Mary's Churchyard, Llanfair, Meirionydd, SH577291, 12/08/1998. The record needs further investigation, but in the meantime is considered doubtful.
