Bryophyte of the Month

 

Physcomitrium sphaericum (Ludw.) Brid.

Physcomitrium sphaericum (Dwarf Bladder-moss), on the margin of the Talybont Reservoir in the Brecon Beacons, September 2020.
Not the best image, but a great find by Sharon Pilkington, involving much searching on hands and knees in the mud and rain!

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. It would be very useful if some explanatory text could be sent to accompany the image.
