Place

(Somewhere...)

Description

*In a lowland seasonal creek growing on Fraxinus latifolia (Oregon Ash).

*Leaves are shiny and wavy with a noticeable midrib.

Other species growing in creek bed are Symphoricarpos alba (common snowberry), several types of lichen, at least one other moss which I believe to be Homalothecium fulgescens (Yellow moss) and some Rubus discolor (Himalayan blackberry).
