Description

I saw some moss growing on an alder tree. It was close to the base of the tree. The area is fairly wet. But the moss felt fairly dry. The moss it small, long an wavy. It was a medium grayish green. The closest identity I thought it was, was the douglas' Neckera.

Description

This moss was a very dominant species on a rotting tree stump and on a neighboring Maple tree. I used my trusty hand lens to verify that this moss did not have a costa, since it is a similar looking plant to menziesii. The moss was covered with sporophytes although they did not show up in my picture.

Description

I saw this growing on a big leaf maple tree as I was walking to my car at lunch-time yesterday. At first I thought it was a liverwort, then I saw the sporophyte capsules with peristome teeth and I knew I had a moss.

I kind of dreaded trying to key this one out, but this was actually very easy to key out thanks to its complanate, undulated leaves and the funky dentate recurved leaf tips.

Description

I found this moss specimen on the trunk of a downed maple tree. I closely examined the sample under my hand lens and with the help of my keying source, I identified it as Neckera douglasii. The moss can be quite large and the coloring looks to be light to olive gree, It is irregularly branched and is generally descending.
