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.

Ranunculus hederaceus - Ivy-leaved Crowfoot

Listed in the Long List of Globally Threatened/Declining Species. It is declining in Britain and possibly in Cornwall and this decline may partly be due to competition with the more vigorous and robust R. omiophyllus which occupies a similar ecological niche. Localities include Gwithian Common (SW54V, 1996, C.N.French), Bedruthan Farm (SW86P, 1992, H.M.Meredith), near St. Ervan (SW87V, 1992, D.I.Cockerill), Trevalga (SX09V, 1996, C.H.Watts) and Treven, Launceston (SX28L, 1996, M.Atkinson).
