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.

Alopecurus bulbosus - Bulbous Foxtail

This is an extremely rare grass in Cornwall. Nationally Scarce, it is known at present from just one site, in wet, brackish grassland near Cotehele, by the River Tamar (SX46J). First recorded here in 1875 (T.R.A.Briggs, 1880), it was seen again by I.Nicholson during the 1950s and refound in 1989 by R.W.Gould.
