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.

Asplenium adiantum-nigrum - Black Spleenwort

Black Spleenwort is widespread and common, except on Bodmin Moor, the Isles of Scilly and parts of north east Cornwall. It is usually found on mortared walls and in the interstices between boulders on Cornish Hedges. It is frequent along innumerable Cornish lanes.
