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.

Taraxacum croceiflorum

Although widely distributed across Cornwall, the records are, at present, rather local. It has been listed at several sites on the Lizard, most frequently on the schists in SW62 and SW72. Other records include a roadside at Chy-an-hal (SW42P, 1975, L.J.Margetts), waste ground at Par (SX05R, 1973, L.J.Margetts), a roadside at Camelford (SX18B, 1979, L.J.Margetts), Crooklets, Bude (SS20D, 1979, L.J.Margetts) and Saltash (SX45I, 1982, I.Nicholson).
