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.

Selaginella kraussiana - Mossy Clubmoss

Krauss's Clubmoss may be seen in churchyards growing most frequently where the grass is thinning due to shade from trees, as at Chynhale (SW63K). It also occurs in a number of the estate gardens, such as Tresco Abbey Gardens, Isles of Scilly, (SV81X) and is sometimes seen in greenhouses. It has even been seen in one of the glass fronted animal enclosures at the Paradise Park, Hayle (SW53N). It is very abundant in the lane which runs past Penjerrick Gardens towards Mawnan Smith (SW73Q).
