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.

Trichophorum germanicum - Deergrass

Deergrass is widespread on Bodmin Moor and present, sometimes in great quantity, on the mid-Cornwall moors, such as Retire Common (SW96W & SX06B) and Goss Moor (SW96K). It has been found at only a few sites in West Cornwall, as on Trink Hill (SW53D, 1980s, CWT), near Busullow (SW43C, 1980s, K.Campin), and Nine Maidens stone circle (SW43H, 1982, B.M.Sturdy).
