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 dahlstedtii

Although known as a plant of roadsides, in Cornwall it may also be seen on dune grassland. It is reported from Phillack Towans (SW53U, 1982, B.M.Sturdy), Goonhilly Downs (SW71E, 1979, L.J.Margetts), Penhale Sands, (SW75T, 1976, L.J.Margetts), Harlyn Bay (SW87S, 1974, L.J.Margetts) and Cremyll (SX45L, 1983, B.M.Sturdy).
