Low medio-European forests of Quercus petraea or Quercus robur occupying warm exposures beyond the range of Quercus pubescens and linked to the Quercion pubescenti-petraeae by the presence of Buxus sempervirens or other thermophile calcicolous plants, including Limodorum abortivum, Melittis melissophyllum.
