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.

Nymphoides peltata - Fringed Water-lily

Nationally Scarce, Fringed Water-lily is often just a casual in Cornwall, mainly an aquarists' throw-out, as in the quarry pool at Carfury (SW43M, 1995, R.J.Murphy). It has also been seen in a newly created fish pond near Porthgwarra (SW32R, 1987, G.Halliday), in one of the Clowance estate lakes (SW63H, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), in a pond on Goss Moor (SW96K, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), in a pond near Lower Polmorla (SW96S, 1996, I.J.Bennallick), and in Treskilling disused china clay pit (SX05I, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
