This moss, which I think is Slender Beaked Moss or Kindbergia praelonga, was growing among other mosses on a fallen Bigleaf Maple log. Could it actually be Kindbergia oregana?

This Rhytidiadelphus may be Rhytidiadelphus triquetrus (Goose-necked Moss, aka Electrified Cat's-tail Moss), or maybe Rhytidiadelphus loreum (Lanky Moss)... It's hard to ID them with the book I use.

I can't make sense of leafy liverworts in CA, but whatever. It was cool to see one in CT. Growing on a large rock, seemed like a pretty moist area, though it rained pretty hard the last few days.
