The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Cornish Red Data Book (2009). The map on this web page depicts the organisms distribution and shows the records made pre-2000 and those made since.
Range & Status
Endemic. Oceanic Southern-temperate plant.
F. muralis subsp. neglecta was first found in a cultivated field at Gilly Tresamble near
Penryn in 1907 (SW73). Other records have been made in Cornwall but the plant has not been seen for years and may well be extinct (Sell, 1998). A record for Port Quin in East Cornwall (SW98) was not confirmed (Margetts & Spurgin, 1991; Murphy, 2009).
Habitat & Ecology
Cultivated fields and disturbed soil.
