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.

Taraxacum britannicum

Old records for this species may be doubtful. The following would seem to be correct according to the map given in Dudman and Richards (1997): Penhale on the Lizard (SW61Z, 1982, L.J.Margetts); Bray's Cot (SW71J, 1982, L.J.Margetts); Traboe Cross (SW72F, 1982, L.J.Margetts); Perranporth dunes (SW75S, 1982, L.J.Margetts); by the creek at Pencalenick (SW84, 1976, L.J.Margetts); Treviscoe, St. Dennis (SW95N, 1976, L.J.Margetts); Altarnun (SX28F, 1979, L.J.Margetts) and Week St. Mary (SX29I, 1979, L.J.Margetts).
