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.

Gaudinia fragilis - French Oat-grass

A rare casual which has been recorded from refuse heaps in Truro (SW84H, pre-1940?, W.Borlase), and a ballast heap in Charlestown (SX05F, 1913, W.Tresidder), (McClintock, 1972). Most recently it was found on a road verge near Tregony (SW94N, 1988, A.L.Grenfell), but has not survived there.
