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.

Filago vulgaris - Common Cudweed

Common Cudweed was formerly widespread, but is now rather rare, having disappeared from many of its former stations. It may still be found at Delabole Quarry (SX08R, 1993, R.J.Murphy), on the disused railway line near Wadebridge, now the Camel Trail (SW97L, 1993, M.Atkinson) and on the cliff-top near Gorran Haven (SX04G, 1995, M.Atkinson). It also occurs in bulb fields on the Isles of Scilly.
