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 aphaca - Yellow Vetchling

Yellow Vetchling is Nationally Scarce and is a very rare casual which appears intermittently as a tan-bark alien at the tannery in Grampound (SW94J) and as a garden weed. In 1997 it was seen at the Tomperrow Scout Campsite which is in a disused quarry (SW74S, C.N.French).
