Probably not Homalothecium...
I keyed this to L. californicum in the field, but I don't think that's right. L. dasycarpum? This whole family throws me.
Same mystery one I saw in Marin a few weeks ago. It seems to have the tuber-like base to the sporophyte like (I'm told) Phaoceros is supposed to have, but it's definitely way different than the ones without frilly leaves like this.
I was interested in the white whispy one, still not sure what it is. Not that I know what the other one is either, mind you.
Orthotrichum has neat capsules. Some day I'll get a good shot of them.
Nice to see the sporophytes again.
C. cuneatus, I presume?
Not sure. Brown on back, none of the blue or red of a kestrel, pits were sort if dark but not as dark as I've seen in others.
Base of bay with Alsia, Dendrialsia, Isothecium, Porella, turret spiders
