Siliceous screes of the Cordillera Cantabrica; floristically rich formations of the "dark" screes of the Cordillera are related to those under unit U283, though somewhat intermediate towards U234; other more species-poor ones, characterised by Trisetum hispidum and Rumex suffruticosus, belong to the latter.
