Thuidium tamariscinum

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Friday 28 January 2011 21:23

This is Common Tamarisk-moss Thuidium tamariscinum and is a beautiful fern-like pleurocarpus moss. It's pretty common but very distinctive. I decided to try something new today as I found this large hummock of the moss in the woods at Woods Mill.
I beat the moss into a tray and found a couple of bugs. I spent quite a bit of time identifying one of them just and I'm happy with the ID. It was Peritrechus nubilus and my first new species for nearly a week leaving me on 3067.
