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.

Rumex crispus subsp. littoreus - Sea Curled Dock

This form of Curled Dock with large tubercles is restricted to the coastal fringe, usually within reach of sea spray. Most commonly seen at the base of cliffs, especially Head cliffs, where freshwater seepages occur, it can be found at Longrock Beach (SW43V, 1997, C.N.French), Porth Saxon Beach (SW72Y, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), Trevilling Creek (SW97W, 1994, R.J.Murphy), Marsland (SS21D, 1997, M.Atkinson) and Pendower beach (SW93E, 1990, M.Tempest).
