Plagiochila atlantica is a Northern Atlantic species of open humid deciduous woodland, growing typically on sloping surfaces of rocks and the bases of tree trunks. It is found mainly in NW Scotland, with a few localities in the Lake District and Wales. There is also a record from Brittany. The photograph here was taken at Cwn Rheidol, Ceredigion, during the 2005 BBS Spring Meeting. It is seen here growing alongside Plagiochila spinulosa, and stems of the two plants are marked for comparison. It has now been synonomised with P.heterophylla (see http://www.chem.gla.ac.uk/staff/davidry/liverworts/p_atla.htm)
