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.

Erodium cicutarium - Common Stork's-bill

Common Stork' s-bill is especially common in dune grassland such as Gwithian Towans (SW54Q) and Penhale Sands (SW75S & SW75T). It is also frequent by coastal paths and in short maritime turf around Newquay (SW76), the Camel estuary (SW97) and along the south coast. Inland it can be found in waste places that are sandy such as on the A30(T) verge near Goss Moor (SW96Q, 1996, I.J.Bennallick) and Castle-an-Dinas Quarry (SW43X,1996, C.N.French). Common Stork' s-bill is also found on the Isles of Scilly.
