This vegetation type is dominated by Callitriche hermaphroditica, an aquatic macrophyte that is a weak competitor, and which forms only submerged stands. Historical records of this association are from a few fishponds with cool, oligotrophic to mesotrophic water in eastern Bohemia and the ®ďárské vrchy Hills. Currently it is only known from Malé Dářko fishpond in the ®ďárské vrchy Hills.
