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.

Lathyrus nissolia - Grass Vetchling

Grass Vetchling is very rare. It has been known from Lelant for many years (SW53N) and elsewhere it is of more casual occurrence. In 1993 it was found at Cowlands Creek, near Truro (SW84F, J.Mellor), and was reported from Moorswater, near Liskeard after 1980 (SX26H, S.C.Madge) and from Liskeard in 1996 (SX26M, R.Roberts).
