Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Aphanes australis - Slender Parsley-piert

Slender Parsley-piert is frequent along cliffs, on tracks, waste places, on wall tops, and in cultivated ground. It also occurs on the Isles of Scilly. Plants that are intermediate between Aphanes australis and A. arvensis have been seen in Cornwall, but these have not as yet been listed.
