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.

Matthiola sinuata - Sea Stock

Sea Stock is a Red Data Book plant that seems to be extinct in Cornwall. The last record was of two introduced plants found on a cliff at Falmouth (SW83B, 1935, E.Thurtson). An 1853 record from the Isles of Scilly was rejected by Lousley as a mistake for M. incana (Lousley, 1971).
