Known commonly as Frosted Cup Lichen in English and Cladonie saupoudrée in French, Swales encountered this cup lichen on 'open rocky terrain' while travelling across the Northwest Territories in July 1965.

Cladonia ecmocyna are known to favour sun-exposed or partialy shaded areas. The lichen Swales encountered on that rocky surface would have appeared pale gray-green small, cup-like bodies.
