Sphagnum lindbergii

Sphagnum lindbergii

Description:

Capitulum large, with obvious terminal bud; stems dark brown; stem leaves wide torn-lacerated tips, folded back and fused to stem. Branch fascicles <5 branches. Branch leaves slender and tapering, small. Branch leaf cross-section with green cells more exposed on convex surface. Branch leaf hyaline cells with a large apical pore, few pores otherwise; branch leaf hayline cells also with long longitudinal firbrils which seem to divide the cell

Habitat:

poor fen. very wet site, growing within a pool.

Notes:

this species seems to mostly match the description of S. lindbergii, although it has only been observed on Cape alava, Wa. This could be a new occurence outside of the Olympic Penninsula.
