Calliergonella lindbergii on tarmac
Our lane gets little traffic and has a well-developed moss strip along its centre. Didymodon insulanus and D. nicholsonii are the dominant species, and I have even found D. nicholsonii with abundant ice crystals growing all over it so I don't think its increase in lowland Britain is (solely) the result of climate change. Anyway, yesterday I noticed some Calliergonella (=Hypnum) lindbergii among the mosses on the tarmac, neatly linking two previous Blog threads.
