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.

Zostera noltei - Dwarf Eelgrass

Dwarf Eelgrass is Nationally Scarce and very rare. Specimens were washed up on Par beach (SX05W, J.A.Paton) in the 1980s and it has been found in the Helford (SW72Y, 1984, S.M.Smith), and at mid-tide level in the East Looe river (SX25, 1997, A.Rowden).
