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.

Epipactis palustris - Marsh Helleborine

Marsh Helleborine is known only from Penhale Sands (SW75Y, 1996, B.Grant), near Perranporth and in a dune slack at Rock, opposite Padstow (SW97I, 1993, T.Dingle). There are a few scattered old records such as from a field in St. Teath in 1979 (SX08Q, E.W.M.Magor) and Brewgate Moor, Sennen (SW32S, 1971, B.M.Sturdy).
