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.

Potamogeton berchtoldii - Small Pondweed

Small Pondweed is the commonest narrow-leaved Potamogeton in Cornwall, but is absent from the Isles of Scilly. It occurs in reservoirs, lakes, ponds, slow-flowing streams and canals. Sites include a small pond on the Bude Marshes (SS20C, 1998, M.Atkinson), on Goss Moor (SW95P, 1992, R.J.Murphy), Seaton (SX35C, 1991, S.C.Madge), in a pond near the top of Zelah Hill (SW85G, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Wherrytown Lake, Penzance (SW42U, 1998, R.J.Murphy).
