The capsule and peristome images below are labelled as ‘Probably Bryum radiculosum‘ because it is difficult or impossible to exclude a lot of other taxa with small spores and this type of peristome. The capsule was from a shoot without tubers, but B. radiculosum tubers were found in the same specimen.
David Holyoak’s book contains keys, detailed morphological, ecological and taxonomic descriptions and diagrams showing key features – and is highly recommended for anyone wishing to get to know Bryum species.
The Bryophyte identification page under Resources contains additional information on the genus Bryum, including an early version of the keys now published in David Holyoak’s book.Bryophyte identification resources
