Within the Gomphocerinae (Acrididae), the second most abundant subfamily, Orphulella concinnula (Walker, 1870) (n = 78), Orphulella punctata (De Geer, 1773) (n = 59) and Orphulella elongata Bruner, 1911 (n = 2) were captured in forest-edge areas with plenty of light and are considered heliophilous
The understory is usually dominated by Bocconia frutescens, and other heliophilous
plants also accompany this species.

Notes on four mediterranean Cortinarius fruiting in sclerophilous and heliophilous
shrubs like Cistus ladanifer and Genista hystrix reach a high cover naturally in these forests and increase their proneness to wildfires.
The grass layer is composed of high clones of Urtica dioica, Impatiens glandulifera, Phalaris arundinacea, and other nitratophilous, heliophilous
The steep slope allows lateral light penetration and heliophilous
species to grow even within multilayer forest-like phytocoenoses.
It also joins up with the cipres de la cordillera (Austrocedrus chilensis), a more heliophilous
and to a certain extent xerophilous species.
