Sphagnum medium

Another of the more unusual Sphagna seen at Silver Flowe in Galloway during the BBS Summer meeting 2023.  Sphagnum medium was only relatively recently split from S. divinum; both were formerly recorded as S. magellanicum.

You can find some tips on separating S. medium and S. divinum, along with a link to Mark Hill’s comprehensive article describing the differences, in our Species Finder at https://www.britishbryologicalsociety.org.uk/learning/species-finder/sphagnum-medium/.
