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.

Radiola linoides - Allseed

Allseed is rather inconspicuous and may be under-recorded. Nevertheless, it has not been recorded from a large number of sites in recent years, and it seems certain that it is no longer as common as it once was. Where it does occur, it is often locally common and tends to grow on stony, sparsely vegetated sites, often in slight hollows, such as occur in dry heaths or on the cart tracks which criss-cross the Lizard. It is, however, common on the Isles of Scilly. Recent Cornish records include Bosfranken (SW32X, 1997, S.Young), West Lizard Downs (SW61W, 1998, R.J.Murphy), old sand pits, St. Agnes Beacon (SW75A, 1996, C.N.French), East Pentire Head (SW76V, 1996, H.M.Meredith), Burngullow Common (SW95X, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Tregonetha Downs (SW96L, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Carbis Moor (SX05H, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), and near Bowithick (SX18R, 1997, C.N.French).
