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.

Hymenophyllum wilsonii - Wilson's Filmy-fern

Wilson' s Filmy-fern grows on sheltered damp rock faces amongst the granite tors and boulder fields of Bodmin Moor (often with H. tunbrigense) and West Penwith. It tends to be long persistent at its known stations such as The Cheesewring (SX27R) and Carn Galver (SW43I). Other sites include Rosewall Hill (SW43Z, 1996, D.T.Holyoak), Berry Down (SX16Z, 1997, M.Atkinson), Rough Tor (SX18K, 1990, D.Lord), Stowes Hill (SX27L, 1994, M.Atkinson), Kilmar Tor (SX27M, 1999, I.J.Bennallick), Bearah Tor (SX27M, 1990, R.M.Belringer), Sharp Tor (SX27R, 1991, R.M.Belringer) and Hawks Tor (SX27N, 1997, M.Atkinson).
