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.

Neottia ovata - Common Twayblade

Common Twayblade is mainly found deep in woodlands near streams or rivers, but also occurs in very wet Salix carr in mid-Cornwall and along road verges such as near St. Keverne (SW72Q, 1992, C.N.French). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly. Sites include near Tremayne Woods (SW72H, 1991, P.A.Gainey), Kestle Woods (SW72M, 1991, D.Lyne), Trewince (SW83R, 1998, S.McCartney), Pencalenick Woods (SW84M, 1998, B.N.Boothby), Goss Moor (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), south of Dinham's Bridge (SX07G, 1997, C.Eyre), Millook Wood (SX19Z, 1995, M.Atkinson), Trerulefoot (SX35J, 1990, R.W.Gould), Lydcott Wood (SX35E, 1986, P.S.Madge) and Antony House (SX45D, 1992, S.Ford).
