Pedicularis palustris - Marsh Lousewort
Marsh Lousewort is locally common in marshes on Bodmin Moor and in the mid-Cornwall moors. It can also be found in a number of dune slacks such as at Penhale (SW75Y, 1988, M.Tempest). However, it has not been recently recorded from many of its former lowland sites, particularly in West Cornwall, and is no longer on the Isles of Scilly. Sites include Clodgy Moor (SW42N, 1998, M.Atkinson), Marazion Marsh (SW53A, 1990, D.S.Flumm), St. Dennis Junction (SW95J, 1990, R.M.Belringer), near Tregonhay Farm (SW96V, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), Red Moor (SX06Q, 1987, W.Fojt), Penkestle Moor (SX17Q, 1989, R.J.Murphy), near Buttern Hill (SX18R, 1997, C.N.French), Tregulland, St. Cleer (SX18X, 1988, T.J.Dingle), Tregune (SX19X, 1997, M.Atkinson) and south of Trewarlett Cross (SX37J, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
