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.

Polygonum arenastrum - Small-leaved Knotgrass

Still possibly under-recorded, this is a plant of road verges, footpaths, arable fields and gateways. Localities include St. Just (SW33Q, 1998, C.N.French), Maenporth (SW72Z, 1998, I.J.Bennallick), Castle Drive, St. Mawes (SW83G, 1998, M.Tempest), Penhallow Moor (SW85H, 1998, M.Atkinson), Penrose (SW87Q, 1998, R.E.Lees), near Launceston (SW38H, 1998, W.H.Tucker), and Werrington (SX38I, 1998, D.L.Brookman). It is also on the Isles of Scilly.
