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.

Quercus x rosacea - Oak Hybrid

At present, few records have been made for this hybrid as at Cot Valley (SW33Q, 1995, C.N.French), Tomperrow (SW74S, 1995, C.N.French), St. Clement Woods (SW84I, 1993, D.T.Holyoak), Lamorran Wood (SW84W, 1974, L.J.Margetts), near Mevagissey (SX04C, 1995, H.M.Meredith), Shepherdshill Wood (SX04E, 1995, R.J.Murphy) and near Sladesbridge (SX17B, 1994, R.J.Murphy). It is undoubtedly more common than these records suggest and may even prove to be more common than the two parents ( Q. petraea & Q. robur ).
