Names and Taxonomy

Taxonomy

Hartog 1966 (citation)- p. 132, "According to Bilio (1962, 1965) Proxenetes pratensis is a faithful species for the grassy salt-marsh vegetations, in particular for the Puccinellietum maritimae. In 'het Zwin' the species has been found in the same plant association in the clayey mud between the roots of Puccinellia maritima, together with several characteristic salt-marsh species, such as Proxenetes puccinellicola, Coelogynopora schulzii, Macrostomum spirale, M. balticum and Vejdovskya halileimonia (Table 3). Although its Dutch locality is an euhaline habitat the occurrence of P. pratensis on the salt-marshes of Kiel Bay indicates that it must be a rather euryhaline species."
