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.

Calceolaria chelidonioides - Slipperwort

Slipperwort was found in a mowhay at Lostwithiel in 1935 (SX15E, E.Thurston). A mowhay is a Cornish dialect term for a small patch of ground beside a farm house or barn where hay or corn was stacked and it is often where grain is thrown down for poultry.
