This association includes vegetation of different species of Atriplex and Chenopodium, including Chenopodium chenopodioides. It is a natural vegetation type of saline, periodically flooded soils, which rarely occurs in anthropogenic habitats. In the Czech Republic it has been only found on dried fishpond bottoms at a few sites in southern Moravia.
