Miles, BioOne.org had a description of Schistidium viride that sounds familiar. What is your thoughts?

Okay, this looks like a species of Schistidium. This genus prefers very exposed rocky (in this case concrete) substrates, high in pH. Check out the Schistidium genus. Good job with taking numerous photos.
