Known commonly as Heath Foxhair Lichen in English and Bryocaule divergent in French, Swales encountered this member of the Parmeliaceae family while travelling across the Côte-Nord region of Quebec in July 1966. On the voucher, Swales noted that the lichen she encountered in a 'damp hollow' on the 'top of a rocky hill' was uncommon.

As the English common name suggests, Heath Foxhair Lichen is known to grow in large mats across heath tundras in the arctic.
