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.

Carex pseudocyperus - Cyperus Sedge

Extremely rare in Cornwall, Cyperus Sedge is a plant of nutrient enriched swamps through which water permeates slowly. It is known only from Crousa Downs on the Lizard (SW71P, 1979, J.Hopkins) and at Pentewan (SX04D, 1980, L.J.Margetts).
