This moss was found on a downed log in the teaching gardens at Evergreen. The weather was dry and cold. The leaves are large yellow/green, creeping to arched, once-pinnate, with branches that are evenly and closely spaced. The sporophytes grow fron the side of the stem with black stalks with small papillae. The capsules are inclined, smooth, curved, each with a long beak. It often forms mats on logs, humus and tree bases.

Description

Family Bracytheciaceae

I found this moss growing on a damp and fallen log in an opening of some damp woods near the SEM II building on the Evergreen campus. Cloudy, 38°. This moss is large, yellow-green, creeping/arched, is once pinnate, and has branches that are evenly and closely placed. Its leaves are between 1.2mm and 2mm long, they spread widely, have a strong midrib, elongate cells, and have a shape that reminds me of a fern frond. The sporophytes are common and have black/red, straight stalks with curved, smooth, and inclined capsules that bear a "long beak", hence the common name, Oregon beaked moss.
