I thought I was collecting a male hornwort plant but when I got it home I saw the gemmea tubes. Two great finds for me on this day!

Yeeeeeehaw! I finally, finally found one.. no one in my class found one all quarter.. I've been searching for one for for nearly 7 months..

It was on a decommissioned logging road at about 1,100 feet. Perhaps it was brought in on the hay they spread when they decommissioned the road.

There were a lot of them on the road but this was the first one I saw. I think it caught my eye because it was so horny.

I think I got the ID right. I've only seen one other one. This was in an old growth hemlock forest above the douglas-fir line.

Description

This moss only grows on the scat or animal remains. I'm guessing mountain lion or bear here, due to the abundance of cougar and bear scat I have seen up here over the years.

This moss is hard to find and yet there was a lot of it in this area. There are only three official sightings of Tetraplodon mnioides in Washington state and none of them are in Mason County.

This was on the grade of an abandoned logging road at 2,500 feet in the Olympic Mountains.
