Yeah pull one of the plants out and post a picture of its profile. Leucolepis has a small "treelike" appearance. Climacium is a bit different.

Thanks, Miles. Hmmmm so it is not possible to give it a definite ID from these photos then. If I go back to look at it again, what differences should I look for to get an ID?

Nice! this is either of the two genus' Leucolepis, or Climacium. Both have similar archegonia.
