Insubrian acidophilous Quercus forests
Acidophilous forests of Quercus petraea, often mixed with Castanea sativa, of the southern foothills of the Alps in Liguria, Piedmont and Lombardy. The herbaceous layer is often dominated by Festuca ovina (s.l.) and the undergrowth includes, in addition to plants characteristic of the Quercion, transgressives of the Fagion and of the Quercetalia pubescenti-petraeae. These forests are a western extension of the Illyrian forests of units G1.87332 and G1.8734.
