Encalypta streptocarpa fruiting

I have only seen Encalypta streptocarpa fruiting once before - on a wall in the western Valleys of Glamorgan a couple of years ago.  Today I found this patch, with old setae, in the quarry in Carmel NNR.  As far as I'm aware this is the first time this common species has been seen fruiting in Carms.


  1. I seem to remember you telling me that you had it fruiting of on a wall near the old station in Afan Argoed Country Park Sam. Subsequently, we saw a few there last year.

  2. I still haven't seen this one fruiting despite looking out for it .... guess i'll just have to search a bit harder
