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.

Oenanthe pimpinelloides - Corky-fruited Water-dropwort

Corky-fruited Water-dropwort is very rare in Cornwall. It can be found in damp grassland at the edge of Gunwalloe marshes (SW62Q) and may still be present in grassy scrub on the headland by Venton Farm, Marazion (SW53F, 1971, and 1981, B.M.Sturdy). One plant was seen on the edge of Carnsew Pool, Hayle in 1980 (SW53N, R.J.Murphy).
