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.

Rubus conjungens

The first certain records for R. conjungens were made in 1977, for Upton Towans (SW53U, L.J.Margetts) and Connor Downs (SW53Z, L.J.Margetts). This widespread but endemic bramble would seem to be frequent, perhaps common, in coastal areas, particularly on shell-rich sand dunes (pers. comm. R.W.Gould). In 1998 the plant was found again on Upton Towans, (R.W.Gould). New sites are Penhale Dunes (SW75T), Perran Sands (SW75S) and Crantock (SW76Q), all seen in 1998 by R.W.Gould. Interestingly, it has also been recorded at Grenville Mine (SW63U, 1998, R.W.Gould).
