SS.SCS.ICS.HchrEdw recorded () and expected () distribution in Britain and Ireland (see below)
Most species in this biotope are not interacting with each other except in competition for space although the characteristic species are so widely separated, there is unlikely to be significant competition. It is expected that there will be grazers present - small prosobranchs and chitons especially although the biotopes classification gives no indication. There is no information available on the infauna of the biotope.
