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.

Taraxacum hamatum agg.

According to Margetts (1988) this dandelion only occurs in a few sites on the Lizard, as at Predannack Airfield (SW61Y, 1982, L.J.Margetts), Cury (SW62Q, 1982, L.J.Margetts), near Lowland Point (SW71Z, 1982, L.J.Margetts) and near Polkerth (SW72F, 1982, L.J.Margetts). Elsewhere in Cornwall it has been noted at Sett Bridge, Ruan Lanihorne (SW84W, 1988, R.J.Murphy).
