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.

Euphrasia officinalis subsp. anglica - Glandular Eyebright

Local and now somewhat rare, Euphrasia anglica may be found in old granite quarries, in old pastures and on moors. It is still relatively frequent on Bodmin Moor, such as near The Cheesewring (SX27L). It can also be found on Kit Hill (SX37Q, 1994, A.J.Silverside) and in the orchid-rich Sylvia's Meadow at St. Ann's Chapel (SX47A, 1988, A.Newton). There are few recent records for West Cornwall, one of these being on the granite hill at Carn Marth (SW74A), and another between Coverack and Lowland Point on the Lizard (SW71Z, University of Bristol Lizard Project). Unaccountably, E. anglica is absent in mid-Cornwall.
