Festuca pseudovina swards of the slightly elevated natron shoulders and low benches of the Pannonic puszta, on saline but permanently dry soils with a thin humic layer. Together with the low-lying rills that score them, they constitute the main landscape of the saline Pannonian steppes; the formations of unit R62111 constitute the centre group of communities, those of unit R62113 mostly compose intermediate belts between these and the bare or sparsely vegetated rills, those of units R62112 and R62114 are edaphically or geographically limited variants, that of unit R62116 is both transitional to rill vegetation and geographically limited. The communities of unit R62115 comprise the transitions between the saline pusztas and saline steppe-forests.
