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.

Gymnadenia densiflora - Marsh Fragrant Orchid

Previously known as Gymnadenia conopsea ssp. densiflora (Wahlenb.) E.G. Camus, Marsh Fragrant Orchid has only ever been recorded on Penhale Sands, near Perranporth (SW75Y). It was first seen here in 1967 by L.J.Margetts and is still present (1998, D.T.Holyoak).
