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.

Geranium pusillum - Small-flowered Crane's-bill

i> G. pusillum is rare and very local in occurrence. It is most frequent in Mount field, near Penhale Sands (SW75Y, 1991, C.I.Pogson) and around the old dynamite factory on Upton Towans (SW53U, 1990, D.M.Lewis), but has also been recorded in an arable field and occasionally on roadsides. Other recent records include north of Gwithian (SW54V, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), The Kelseys (SW75U, 1993, H.M.Meredith), Cubert Common (SW75Z, 1993, H.M.Meredith), Gerrans (SW83S, 1998, M.Tempest) and Torpoint (SX45H, 1990, R.W.Gould).
