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.

Melampyrum pratense var. hians - Common Cow-wheat

This variety of Common Cow-wheat is not mentioned in Stace (1997). There is a scattering of records across Cornwall from such places as Luckett Wood (SX37W, 1989, R.J.Murphy) and Bishop's Wood, Idless (SW84J, 1979, L.J.Margetts).
