Unlike the majority of species in the Flustridae family, Hincksina flustroides forms encrusting colonies. The colonies are typically light brown in colour and comprise circular or lobed patches. Hincksina flustroides occurs in the subtidal, most frequently on shells, but may also colonise stones.

Hincksina flustroides is essentially a warm water species, distributed throughout the Mediterranean and extending to the south and west of Britain and Ireland
