Biogeography: Continent: Asia-Temperate, Europe, and Northern America.

Ecology: Biotroph; lichenized; substrate non-calciferous.

Thallus: Indistinct or crustose, rimose or areolate (primarily areolate) (indistinctly); separate thallus parts thick (up to 1 mm). Thallus Outline: Soon disappearing. Upper Surface: White, glossy (shiny), smooth.

Reproduction Strategy: With sexual (and possible asexual) stages. Ascocarps: Soon sessile, slightly constricted or strongly constricted at the base, .6-1.3-2.5 mm in diam.. Margin: Strongly flexuose (in older apothecia), distinct. Disk: Plane to slightly weakly convex, black, epruinose. Parathecium (proper excipulum): Not inspersed with crystals (often with yellow crystals of 7-chloroemodin). Amphithecium (thalline excipulum): Present; 40-70-100-(160) µm wide. Epithecium: Apical cells dark green (rarely olive-green) or turquoise. Hymenium: White or pale green. Hypothecium: Faintly brown or white.

Conidia: (5)-7-8-12 µm long.

Secondary Metabolites: 7-chloroemodin (in apothecia, rarely absent), atranorin (in thallus, usually in traces, often absent), or emodin.
