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.

Valerianella dentata - Narrow-fruited Cornsalad

Narrow-fruited Cornsalad is a corn field weed which in the past was found scattered throughout Cornwall and has all but disappeared, except from a few arable fields near Polzeath (SW97P, 1988, T.J.Dingle, still there 1991), and near Trethillick Farm (SW97C, 1998, T.J.Dingle). It has also been recorded on the Isles of Scilly.
