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.

Galium uliginosum - Fen Bedstraw

It is possible that Fen Bedstraw is present at most, if not all, of its former localities on the Lizard Peninsula and a detailed search may uncover further records at other previously known stations. It has recently been found at Penhallow Moor (SW85H, 1998, M.Atkinson), Trewassick (SW86K, 1997, H.M.Meredith), Lands (SX06J, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Egloskerry (SX28T, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Creddacott Meadows (SX29M, 1998, I.J.Bennallick). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
