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.

Bromus secalinus - Rye Brome

Rye Brome, until recently, was considered to be no longer present in Cornwall as it had not been seen since 1926 (Margetts & David, 1981). Furthermore, some of the records were considered likely to refer to B. pseudosecalinus . A casual of corn fields, it has now been refound at Westcott Farm in VC2 (SX29W, 1998, A.Atkinson) and in fields near Crossgate in the VC4 area of Cornwall (SX38P, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
