- ad ramos arborum frondosarum siccos ubique fere(S&A), almost everywhere on dry branches of frondose [i.e. deciduous] trees.

- ad truncos arborum frondosarum frequens (S&A), frequent on the trunks of leaf-bearing trees.

- in ramulis frondosis rarior: praefert enim cortices pineos abietinsque (S&A), more rare on leaf-bearing branches, for it prefers the bark of pines and firs.

- in sylvis frondosis ubique, [in deciduous forests everywhere].

- crescit in umbrosis frondosis, vel acerosis utraque non infrequens (S&A), it grows in leafy shade, or not infrequent in acerose [shade of evergreens].

- in pinetis (vix in sylvis abietinis, nedum frondosis) (S&A), in pine-woods (scarcely in fir-forests, much less frondose [i.e. deciduous].

- in sylvis acerosis vulgares: in dumetis frondosis semel lecta; in abiegnis, haud rara (S&A), common in needle-leaved forests; once collected in deciduous thorn-thickets; on fir-wood it is not rare,.

- ad dumeta frondosa inter folia muscosque passim solitaria provenit species vel subgregaria (S&A), the species occurs in deciduous thorn-thickets among leaves and mosses everywhere solitary or somewhat gregarious

- passim provenit subcaespitosa locis sylvarum nemorosis frondosis (S&A), everywhere it occurs, somewhat caespitose in places of leafy [i.e. deciduous] open-woodland forests.

- solitaria nascitur haec in sylvis variis, acerosis aeque ac frondosis (S&A), these are born solitary in various forests, in needle-leaved equally to frondose [i.e. deciduous].

- arbores amarae, ramis crassis apice frondosis (B&H), bitter trees, with thick branches, leafy at the apex.
