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 oederi - Small-fruited Yellow-sedge

The pre-1980 records for this sedge were probably mis-identifications for small forms of C. viridula ssp. oedocarpa (Margetts and David 1981). The true plant occurs at two sites: a small marsh just inland from the coast in the Chapel Porth valley (SW64Z, 1980, L.J.Margetts) and in similar marshy conditions on Penhale Sands (SW75T, 1980, J.F.D.Frazer).
