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.

Pseudofumaria lutea - Yellow Corydalis

Yellow Corydalis is usually seen growing from mortared garden walls as isolated clumps. It has a scattered distribution and is invariably found close to habitation at such places as Redruth (SW64V, 1996, C.N.French), Polwhele Farm (SW84I, 1988, R.E.Lees), near Bofarnel (SX16B, 1990, M.Atkinson), Werrington (SX38I, 1998, D.L.Brookman), near Bulsworthy (SX38M, 1989, R.J.Murphy) and St. John & Penhale (SX45B, 1990, R.W.Gould). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
