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.

Lysimachia punctata - Dotted Loosestrife

When in flower in late summer Dotted Loosestrife is a very conspicuous plant and can be seen on waste ground, mine sites and road verges, although often merely a casual. Records include Great Work (SW53V, 1997, C.N.French), Camborne-Redruth bypass (SW64Q, 1997, C.N.French), Maenporth (SW72Z, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), St. Agnes Beacon Pits (SW75A, 1980, B.E.Jackson), Demelza (SW96R, 1987, I.J.Bennallick), Porcupine (SX05X, 1997, M.Atkinson), Davidstow (SX18H, 1998, M.Atkinson), Tresparrett Posts (SX19L, 1997, M.Atkinson), Bude (SS20D, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Clicker Quarry (SX26V, 1996, R.J.Murphy) and south of Trewarlett Cross (SX37J. 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
