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.

Ranunculus muricatus - Scilly Buttercup

Scilly Buttercup can be found on several of the Scillonian islands; St. Mary's, Bryher, and Tresco, but has rarely been found growing on the mainland. The most recent such record came from a horticultural farm near Redruth (SW64S, 1991, C.N.French).
