Identification notes

If you are handed a single shoot of this moss in isolation, it resembles any number of acrocarps with long slender leaves. However, when you are out and about in the hills and find it on damp acid cliffs, crags and sheltered rocky overhangs, its tendency to grow in deep, dense cushions which can be large and conspicuous renders it conspicuous and easy to recognise.
