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.

Epilobium x brunnatum - Epilobium ciliatum x brunnescens

Epilobium x brunnatum, the hybrid between E. brunnescens and E. ciliatum, was discovered new to science at Wheal Maid, near St. Day (SW74L, 1995, D.T.Holyoak). It has since been found at a number of other localities including Wheal Busy (SW74H, 1997, G.D.Kitchener), on china clay waste at Goonamarris (SW95M, 1995, R.J.Murphy), by an old railway near Indian Queens (SW95I, 1997, G.D.Kitchener), Goss Moor (SW95J, 1997, G.D.Kitchener), Doublebois Quarry (SX16X, 1997, G.D.Kitchener), and china clay gravel on Carclaze Downs (SX05H, 1996, G.D.Kitchener), see Kitchener & McKean, (1998).
