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.

Potamogeton pectinatus - Fennel Pondweed

Fennel Pondweed is rare and is restricted to West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The known extant sites are the municipal lake in Helston (SW62N) and Trenance Gardens Lake (SW86A, 1994, H.M.Meredith). It has, in the main, been found in still freshwater ponds and lakes.
