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.

Pinguicula grandiflora - Large-flowered Butterwort

Large-flowered Butterwort is not native in Cornwall. It was introduced onto moors in West Penwith and persisted for a few years. Records include Skewjack (SW32S, 1909, C.Reid) and Trungle (SW42N, 1879, J.Ralfs & 1928, E.A.Rees).
