Teucrium brevifolium is a common constituent of phrygana on hot and dry, often S-facing hillslopes in the C & S Aegean area, just extending to SW Anatolia and also re-appearing in Cyrenaica (NE Libya) and adjacent NW Egypt, thus representing the N African connection in the Aegean flora. It is a distinct species forming dense bushy shrublets together with Euphorbia acanthothamnos, Thymbra capitata and others.
