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.

Comarum palustre - Marsh Cinquefoil

Marsh Cinquefoil is very local in occurrence growing in moorland pools and ditches. It can be found at scattered localities on the Lizard and in north east Cornwall. In mid-Cornwall there is a notable concentration of records and it is locally common in such places as Goss Moor (SW95P) and Criggan Moor (SX06A).
