Mnium hornum

 Mnium hornum

Came across this really fine example of Mnium hornum (Swan's-neck Feather-moss) at Esher Common growing underneath a stand of birches the other day. It is one of our most common woodland bryophytes and pleasantly easy to identify with its upright posture and large dark green leaves. I like it especially because it makes me look clever when I point it out to people.
