Brachythecium salebrosum
(Hoffm. ex F.Weber & D.Mohr) Schimp.

Brachythecium salebrosum (Smooth-stalked Feather-moss) is one of a few similar (and sometimes tricky) Brachytheciums with long, triangular leaves and fine tips. Jonathan Sleath has nicely captured the long, gradually tapered, plicate leaves in this specimen from Micheldever Wood in Hampshire.
