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.

Oreopteris limbosperma - Lemon-scented Fern

Lemon-scented Fern can be locally frequent alongside streams on Bodmin Moor, as in the valleys which drain towards Bowithick (SX18V). There are no recent records from West Cornwall, although careful searching of the Carnmenellis Massif could lead to its rediscovery. However, old sites have been relocated in mid-Cornwall, as on Burngullow Common (SW95X, 1998, M.Atkinson) and Molinnis Moor (SX05E, 1998, I.J.Bennallick).
