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.

Euphorbia exigua - Dwarf Spurge

Dwarf Spurge has become rare in recent years, but is still a frequent arable weed around Bude (SS20), Stibb (SS21) and around the Camel at Padstow, Rock and St. Enodoc (SW97). Recent finds include arable fields at Nancekuke (SW64Y, 1983, B.N.Boothby), West Pentire (SW87K, 1996, H.M.Meredith), Portholland (SW94K, 1997, M.Tempest), near Helland (SX07Q, 1997, H.M.Meredith), Erth Barton (SX35Y, 1996, A.Atkinson) and in a bulb field at Fraddam (SW53X, 1992, C.N.French).
