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.

Chenopodium murale - Nettle-leaved Goosefoot

The majority of records for Nettle-leaved Goosefoot have been coastal and it now persists only along the south coast of Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly. Recent records include a field near Marazion (SW53F, 1982, R.J. Murphy), a cabbage field on the Lizard (SW71A, 1992, I. Green), Seaton (SX35C, 1990, R.W. Gould) and St. John's Lake (SX45C, 1990, R.W. Gould).
