As a part of the evaluation of land within West Penwith as a potential Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981, Natural England has identified five vascular plants as provisional designated features. These are:
Coral-necklace: Illecebrum verticillatum;
Pale Heath-violet: Viola lactea;
Yellow Centaury: Cicendia filiformis;
Pillwort: Pilularia globulifera;
Cornish Moneywort: Sibthorpia europaea.
This report summarises the results of a field-based survey by the author in spring/summer 2019 to confirm or otherwise the continued presence of these five species within the proposed SSSI and/or adjacent areas which could be included within the proposed SSSI boundary.
