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.

Linaria supina - Prostrate Toadflax

Possibly native in sandy places and a Red Data Book species, Prostrate Toadflax is no longer to be seen at Newham (SW84G) or at Par (SX05R) where it was last recorded along an old branch railway line in 1987 (R.J. Murphy). It persists near Falmouth Station (SW83B, 1989, R. Fitzgerald) and was recently refound along the railway line at Goss Moor (SW96K) and on gravel heaps at St. Dennis Junction (SW95J, 1997, I.J. Bennallick).
