This association includes marshes with Typha shuttleworthii, which usually forms small stands on sites flooded by shallow water or wet for most of the year. Habitats include the edges of mesotrophic to eutrophic fishponds, water reservoirs, depressions in wet meadows, alluvial pools, ditches and fluvial sediment accumulations. This rare community has been observed at only a few sites in the Příbram area of central Bohemia and in eastern Moravia.
