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 rubicundum

Known at present only from dunes and short cliff-grassland along the north coast of Cornwall. It has been found in dune grassland at Bude (SS20D, 1986, R.J.Murphy), on the cliff edge at Hell's Mouth, North Cliffs (SW64B, 1980, R.J.Murphy), on Upton Towans (SW53U, 1979, F.Houseman), the Perranporth dunes (SW75S, 1978, M.McCallum Webster) and on the Pentire peninsula (SW98F, 1977, L.J.Margetts).
