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.

Carex x tornabenii - Carex extensa x distans

At various times doubt has been expressed as to the identity of the Harbour Cove record (SW97D, 1964, R.W.David). This has been confirmed by A.O. Chater in 1983 as being correct (Watsonia, 16: 450). The Kemyel Wood record still requires confirmation (SW42S, 1976, B.M.Sturdy). The parents are C. distans and C. extensa .
