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.

Rubus leightonii

The nineteenth century and early twentieth century records suggest it is most frequent within ten miles of the border with England, although there is a scattering of records as far west as the Lizard. The only recent records are from Redlake, near Lostwithiel (SX15J, 1988, A.Newton), between Lerryn and Lostwithiel (SX15I, 1988, L.J.Margetts), near Luckett (SX37W, 1988, R.W.Gould) and at St. Ann's Chapel (SX47A, 1987, R.J.Murphy).
