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.

Zannichellia palustris - Horned Pondweed

A very rare aquatic found mainly in coastal localities such as in the Amble Marshes (SW97X, 1997, M.Atkinson), in the Bude marshes (SS20D, 1989, C.D.Preston), Gunwalloe Marsh (SW62Q, 1989, K.Hearn), on the East Looe river at Terras Bridge (SX25M, 1985, S.C.Madge) and in a wet area in a pasture field near Lewidden (SW87Q, 1998, H.M.Meredith). It is absent from the Isles of Scilly.
