In June 2003, Hans Blom led a Schistidium Workshop for the BBS at Kindrogan Field Centre, Perthshire. The meeting involved both laboratory and field work, with the aim of making the participants more confident in the identification of the Schistidium apocarpum complex.

Seventeen species are known to occur in the British Isles. Many of these are illustrated below. Clicking on the thumbnail image will open a larger image in a new window.
