Identification notes

There’s more crossover between the habitats of Neckera complanata and its two common relatives than might be apparent. N. complanata is the most desiccation tolerant species and is more at home in dry places (such as on drystone walls and rock exposures) than N. crispa, which typically likes more sheltered situations. N. complanata also frequently grows epiphytically (in western areas at least) with N. pumila but unlike N. crispa it rarely if ever grows in sheltered, cool situations in calcareous grassland.
