At present it has been collected in forest and supraforestal pastures, especially in grasslands of open forests with Pinus uncinata  , Abies alba  . and scattered patches of subalpine scrub with blueberry, creeping juniper, rhododendron  and heather, between 1000 and 2125 m ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7), on Acinos alpinus  (L.)

Scop., Eryngium bourgatii Gouan.  , Gentiana lutea  L., Lonicera pyrenaica  L., Lotus corniculatus  L., Medicago sativa L.  , Rhododendron ferrugineum  L., Silene acaulis  (L.) Jacq., Taraxacum officinale Wigg.  , Trifolium alpinum  L., Trifolium pratense L.  , Trifolium repens L.  Vicia cracca L.  and Vicia sativa L.
