Oregon Beaked Moss is one of the more common mosses here, and quite lovely, looking kind of like a miniature fern.
Seen growing on a tree limb in this mixed oak woodland.
Forming a mat of creeping stems over thin soil. Leaves 1.9-2.1 mm long; cells 55-80 x 8-9 µm.
Growing on a tree base. Leaves average 1.0 mm by 0.5 mm. Cells 30-52 x 5-6 µm.
Many trees were covered in this beautiful Cat-tail Moss.
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 moss, growing on a log, looks like it may be Yellow Moss, Homalothecium fulgescens.
