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.

Corrigiola litoralis - Strapwort

Strapwort has long been extinct in Cornwall. It is a Red Data Book species and was last seen on the shore of Loe Pool (SW62M) in 1904, (Davey 1909). There is some doubt concerning Meinertzhagen's specimen in the N.H.M. labelled 'Lizard 1931' (Margetts and David, 1981). The shores of Loe Pool were searched without success during the University of Bristol's Lizard Project (1981-1984).
