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.

Capsella rubella - Pink Shepherd's-purse

There is just one recent station for this introduced species; in Alexandra Road, Penzance, near the Rugby Ground (SW42U, 1980, B.M.Sturdy). The plants found around Lizard Green (SW71B), once thought to have been this species, have been rejected ( fide T.C.G.Rich).
