Pterogonium gracile (Bird’s-foot Wing-moss). Understated elegance - surely deserves a better common name than this! Photo: Jo Denyer, on the Kerry Summer meeting 2019
A non-English bryophyte for a change. Captured by Peter Martin in Greece (under the pretence of visiting his daughter).
Lejeunea flava (Yellow pouncewort) in Derrycunihy Wood during the Kerry Summer Meeting 2019.
Sphagnum quinquefarium (Five-ranked Bog-moss) in Gallavally Wood during the Kerry Summer Meeting 2019. Sometimes also called the anti-social Sphagnum because plants tend not to grow close together.
Trichocolea tomentella (Handsome Woollywort), living up to its name in Killarney National Park during the Kerry Summer Meeting 2019.
Cephalozia crassifolia (Irish Pincerwort), spotted by Rory Hodd at Derrycunihy Falls during the Kerry Summer Meeting 2019.
Cololejeunea rossettiana, looking very prickly indeed! Collected from Goblin Combe, Somerset, where it was growing on Thamnobryum alopecurum on a boulder.
Lepidozia cupressina, much admired in boulder scree near Cwmavon, S. Wales during a Gloucester Bryophyte Group out-of-county meeting in April 2019.
Orthotrichum rupestre photographed at a Wessex Bryology Group meeting at Fyfield Down, Wiltshire in March 2019. The most striking feature of this mainly saxicolous (in Britain) species, is its extremely hairy calyptra.
Marchantia polymorpha photographed by Brad Scott in Ashdown Forest, Sussex 25th May 2014. Common but amazing nevertheless!
