Habitat: Heavy-metal-enriched (Zn-Pb-Cd) lead/zinc mine spoil tailings (closed 1993), on a metaliferous, calamine, calcareous, porous, basal substrate, located in the south Cévennes mountain range, S. France. Site consists of Zn/Pb sulphides and oxides associated with barite. The region's climate and vegetation are considered to be generally sub-Mediterranean.
