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.

Linanthus androsaceus - False Babystars

This plant was discovered growing as a casual on Eastern Green, Penzance in 1888 (SW43V, W.A.Glasson) and at Perranporth in 1900 (SW75M, E.G.Peirson). It was recorded as Gilia micrantha Steud., a name that is now included under Linanthus androsaceus according to Clement & Foster, (1994).
