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.

Lepidium campestre - Field Pepperwort

Field Pepperwort is a very rare plant in Cornwall which does not persist long in any one locality. Most of the records are coastal and most recently it has been seen between Long Rock and Eastern Green (SW43V, 1981, R.J.Murphy), at Dannonchapel Farm (SX08G, 1992, S.J.Ford) and at Nancekuke Airfield (SW64T, 1983, R.J.Murphy).
