Importance and distribution in Luxembourg
The first documented occurrence of the species in Luxembourg dates from 1998. It was found on 1st September 1998 on the right bank of the river Attert (Municipality of Useldange) near the mill (Colling et al. 2001). Only three observations are indicated in the Recorder database.
The monkeyflower typically grows in disturbed areas around riverbanks and is rarely found in the adjacent marshes and wet meadows. This plant species colonises gaps within the established vegetation. It can form large patches where tree cover is low and vegetation is dominated by light-demanding, ruderal and small-sized plant species, especially in the upper reaches of streams (Source: http://ias.biodiversity.be/species/show/116).
ISEIA protocol: C1 (1+2+1+1) (Ries et al. 2013: 18).
