Bryophyte of the Month
Sphagnum quinquefarium (Lindb. ex Braithw.) Warnst.
Sphagnum quinquefarium (Five-ranked Bog-moss) in Gallavally Wood during the Kerry Summer Meeting 2019.
Sometimes also called the anti-social Sphagnum because plants tend not to grow close together.

Each month we will be displaying here a new bryophyte image, and the images shown in previous months will be kept for viewing in the gallery. Submissions for this page are very welcome, and should be sent to the Web Master , preferably as a 600 pixel width JPEG. It would be very useful if some explanatory text could be sent to accompany the image.
