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.

Ceratochloa cathartica - Rescue Brome

Rescue Brome occurs on the Isles of Scilly on waste ground and as a weed of cultivation. It has, at times, been found at a few scattered locations on the mainland, as at Halton Quay (SX46C, 1991, M.Atkinson), Maryfield, Torpoint (SX45I, 1998, M.Atkinson) and at Lariggan in Penzance (SW42U, 1993, D.T.Holyoak).
