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.

Juncus ranarius - Frog Rush

Frog Rush has recently been refound on the Lizard at Lowland Point (SW81E, 1980s, A.J.Byfield). It had been previously recorded there but without locality. In addition, two sites have been discovered in North Cornwall. One is on mud beside a stream at Porth, near Newquay (SW86G, 1993, H.M.Meredith), and the other is from Walmsley Sanctuary, beside the Amble river, on the Camel estuary (SW97X, 1997, A.Atkinson).
