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.

Lolium temulentum - Darnel

Darnel is an extremely rare grass in Cornwall. Most recently it has been recorded from waste tips at Leedstown (SW63C, 1980s, K.L.Spurgin) and Trezise (SW72G, 1980s, A.J.Byfield) on the Lizard and from a flax field by the Upper Tamar Lake (SS21W, 1992, D.Dupree).
