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.

Crassula tillaea - Mossy Stonecrop

Mossy Stonecrop is a diminutive Nationally Scarce plant that is a recent arrival in Cornwall. The first Cornish record was made at Par in the stony sands that formed a base for holiday caravans (SX05R, 1988, R.M.Belringer). It has since been found in several gravelly/sandy car parks such as at Pentewan (SX04D, 1995, M.Atkinson), Holywell (SW75U, 1995, D.T.Holyoak), Lappa Valley Railway (SW85I, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and at Par Sands (SX05W, 1988, R.Fitzgerald). It is also reported from Pensagillas Farm (SW94T, 1996, M.Tempest) and Polkerris (SX05W, 1997, M.Atkinson).
