Biogeography Boreal-montane circumpolar species.

This hemi-sciaphilic species is confined to the subalpine Alfisols substrate and mainly encountered in subalpine beech groves and thickets of associated rowan trees.
It is systematically observed at the base of the trunks of old trees, deformed by snow.
Besides beech and rowan trees, we can also occasionally observe it on willows including Salix caprea and Salix bicolor.
