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.

Epipactis helleborine - Broad-leaved Helleborine

Broad-leaved Helleborine is restricted to East Cornwall, and most abundant in woods and shaded lanes close to the Devon border. Sites include Cox Park Plantation (SX47A, 1987, M.Atkinson), Broadgate (SX37W, 1987, M.Atkinson), Goscott Wood (SX29J, 1987, P.A.Gainey), and Cabilla Wood (SX16H, 1997, M.Atkinson). The most westerly record is from a small wood near Par (SX05R, 1993, T.Atkinson).
