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.

Melilotus indicus - Small Melilot

Small Melilot is a rare casual. It was discovered growing in a weedy ploughed field near Helston in 1994, (SW62Y, C.N.French), amongst the alien flora of Loggans Mill near Hayle (SW53U, 1991, A.L.Grenfell) in two places in Truro (SW84H, 1980s, K.L.Spurgin) and in an arable field on Phillack Towans in 1989 (SW53U, R.J.Murphy, still present in 1998, D.T.Holyoak). It has also been recorded as a tan-bark alien in the past.
