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.

Anthriscus caucalis - Bur Chervil

Bur Chervil is fairly frequent on road verges and paths around the Camel estuary (SW97) and Newquay (SW75 & SW76). Elsewhere it is of sporadic occurrence, often in dune areas. On the Isles of Scilly it can be found on St. Martin's and Tresco.
