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.

Montia fontana subsp. chondrosperma

Inland records for this subspecies have all come from the turn of the century, but recent records are coastal, from cliff sites as at Rosen Cliff, near Nare Head (SW93I, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), at Pentire (SW98F, 1992, R.W.David) and around the Lizard as at Kynance (SW61W, 1994, R.J.Murphy).
