Hedwigia moss

Hedwigia ciliata


Stringy, branched moss with elongated clear tips to "leaves" and distinctive capsules (open capsules shown near center of photo).


Found on rocks very close to water. This was found very close to Cascade Falls in Pembroke, Virginia.


I'm reasonably confident that I have the correct ID, but am more than willing to consider other possibilities.
