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.

Equisetum sylvaticum - Wood Horsetail

Wood Horsetail is extremely rare in Cornwall. In 1986 it was refound in what was then its only known locality, namely Goscott Woods, near Week St. Mary, (SX29I, T.J.Dingle). One other site has been found near the River Inny, north west of Polyphant, (SX28L, 1989, M.Atkinson).
