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.

Tragopogon pratensis subsp. minor/subsp. pratensis

This plant, which seems to be intermediate between the two subspecies (ssp. minor and ssp. pratensis ), has been found in south east Cornwall, such as at Penlee Point (SX44P, 1980s, E.Griffiths) and Paynters Cross (SX36X, 1980s, E.Griffiths). Tragopogon pratensis ssp. pratensis does not occur in Cornwall.
