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.

Crepis biennis - Rough Hawk's-beard

After a long absence of records, Rough Hawk' s-beard has been found at a number of sites across Cornwall. At Stratton (SS20I, 1989, W.J.Tucker) it was discovered in quantity on a grassy bank. In 1981 it was seen on the river bank path between St. Clement and Pencalenick (SW84M, K.L.Spurgin), and in 1989 it was located on a wall at Higher Burthallan (SW54A, R.Fitzgerald). It has also been recorded on dry dune grassland at Phillack Towans (SW53U, 1987, D.J.Vickers) and discovered on the Mount Edgecumbe Estate in 1990 (SX44J, A.Barton).
