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 trichomanes subsp. quadrivalens - Maidenhair Spleenwort

Maidenhair Spleenwort is particularly frequent and widespread in East Cornwall but absent from much of West Cornwall apart from the Carnmenellis Massif (SW73) and parts of West Penwith. It is also rare on the Isles of Scilly. Maidenhair Spleenwort grows on mortared walls, dry stone walls, quarries, bridges and rarely, in pavement cracks.
