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.

Ranunculus tripartitus - Three-lobed Crowfoot

Three-lobed Crowfoot is Nationally Scarce and grows in shallow, muddy pools, in poached mud, in winter-wet depressions in trackways and shallow, water-filled ditches. It has disappeared from many former sites except on the Lizard where it is still frequent. Outside the Lizard it has been found recently in a wet track on Bokiddick Downs (SX06K, 1993, M.Atkinson), near Benny Halt (SW85I, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and on Clodgy Moor (SW42I, 1998, A.Atkinson). These were confirmed by R.Fitzgerald.
