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.

X Dactylodenia legrandiana

This inter-generic hybrid orchid has so far only been found on the Lizard Peninsula such as at Countybridge Quarry (SW72B, 1980, J.Hopkins), Main Dale (SW71Z, 1980s, R.W.Bogue) and Crousa Downs (SW71U, 1973, B.E.M.Garratt). Both parents ( Gymnadenia borealis and Dactylorhiza maculata ssp. ericetorum ) occur in relative abundance in these general areas.
