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.

Spergularia media - Greater Sea-spurrey

Greater Sea-spurrey is found in most of the salt-marsh sites within the estuaries, with the notable exception of the Hayle estuary (SW53). Records include St. Just-in-Roseland (SW83M, 1998, M.Tempest), Gannel (SW86A, 1996, H.M.Meredith), Hartriza Point (SW93P, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Neal Point (SX46F, 1998, M.Atkinson).
