L. australianum. Nowhere particularly common - always an interesting one to spot.
ID by Colin.
Was excited to find this species. Not very good with ferns or their allies but I think this is L. clavatum.
Common in the fringes of Halocarpus "islands"
common along the track edges in scrub
growing alongside loop track
growing alongside the loop track in abundance
Lycopodium (from Greek lukos, wolf and podion, diminutive of pous, foot) is a genus of clubmosses, also known as ground pines or creeping cedar, in the family Lycopodiaceae, a family of fern-allies (see Pteridophyta).
