Boreal felt lichen in Newfoundland are most commonly found on balsam fir trees. The fir is a conifer, usually less than 15 m high, with flat, shiny green needles and erect cones 5-8 cm in length. Fir are common in a variety of habitats. Erioderma is most often found at approximately eye-level, and is usually somewhere between the size of a quarter or a loonie. It is often the darkest lichen on a tree and can sometimes be mistaken for Coccocarpia palmicola, which it often (but not always associated with).
