Saponaria pumilio is an alpine, herbaceous species from Caryophyllaceae family. It occurs dispersed in Eastern Alps and Romanian Carpathians (Iezer-Păpuşa and Făgăraş Massif). It was integrated in Potentillo chrysocraspedae-Festucetum airoidis association, class Juncetea trifidi KLIKA et HADAC 1944, order Caricetalia curvulae Br.-Bl. 1926, alliance Caricion curvulae Br.-Bl. 1925 Boşcaiu 1971. In this paper we present some aspects of S. pumilio coenological integration in Iezer-Păpuşa Mountains.

The identified relevés from Iezer-Păpuşa Massif were included in a phytocoenological table and the data were calculated by the Diemont method. Using this method we observed that bioforms are well represented by hemicryptophytes, followed by camephytes. With regard to phytogeographic elements, the Carpathian-Balkan, Eurasian and European-Arctic-Alpine are prevalent. The presence of Potentilla ternata species indicated the affiliation of this association to Carpathian-Balkan area.
