This paper discusses a predator-prey system with Holling-( ) functional response and the fractional type nonlinear diffusion term in a bounded domain under homogeneous Neumann boundary condition. The existence and nonexistence results concerning nonconstant positive steady states of the system were obtained. In particular, we prove that the positive constant solution is asymptotically stable when the parameter k satisfies some conditions.
