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.

Rubus aequalidens

In recent years this bramble has been found near Madron (SW43K, 1983, G.Halliday) and at several localities in East Cornwall, including Letter Moor (SX17Q, 1996, R.W.Gould), the Glynn valley (SX16M, 1995, R.W.Gould), Wilsey Down (SX18Z, 1994, R.W.Gould) and Trethill Wood (SX35S, 1993, R.W.Gould). Brambles recorded by T.R.Archer Briggs for Polbathic and Sheviock (SX35) in 1873 and 1878 were re-determined as this species by A.Newton (Botanical Cornwall No. 2, 25). Around Polbathic and Anthony (SX35) and in the Glynn valley (SX16), R. aequalidens is the dominant woodland bramble (pers. comm. R.W.Gould).
