This vegetation type is dominated by Tolypella glomerata, a stonewort species which grows taller in calcium-rich water but becomes stunted in calcium-poor environments. The association Tolypelletum glomeratae has so far been recorded at only three sites in the Czech Republic, including a small fishpond, a shallow ditch along a road and a hollow dug-out in a meadow.
