Moss/ Dicranum

Dicranum

Description:

Tiny thin needled patches of green.

Notes:

This patch is zoomed tight. The patch would fit onto a quarter. My dog uprooted it, so I am hoping it will grow on the service of my earthworm farm. Fond near bogged area around creek.

Dicranum! That is it!! It is absolutely beautiful. I love moss. One particular one I plan to photograph tomorrow is stubby. Firmly tight together and stubby, yet heartily growing along pavement and exposed tree roots. I can't wait to learn what it the tough ground rug's name!

After your post, I went out on a walk searching for the beautiful block of space it originated. Unfortunately, the light was fading. I am so excited to learn! At least four more different types are needing photographed. Then, I will post. I'm looking up your suggestion now. Thanks!

This looks like it could be a grass to me. The closest moss genus it could resemble would be the polytrichum genus, are you able to get a better picture?
