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.

Lathyrus sylvestris - Narrow-leaved Everlasting-pea

Narrow-leaved Everlasting-pea has not been seen in West Cornwall in recent years but remains common along cliffs of the south coast, especially to the east of Par, such as at Lantic Bay (SX15K, 1998, I.J.Bennallick) and Portwrinkle (SX35L, 1997, M.Atkinson). Elsewhere there are a few scattered records from near Port Isaac (SW98V, 1987, T.J.Dingle) and on waste ground at St. Dennis Junction, Goss Moor (SW95J, 1996, M.Atkinson).
