Weissia controversa var. densifolia

I rather like the way this colony is enveloping the base of a zinc-coated chain link fence on the boundary of Morriston golf course. The map below shows the number of records is slowly increasing and I'm sure it's fairly widespread if localised. It's worth checking poor soils under this type of fencing, under roadside crash barriers and drip zones under zinc roofing, these all being situations I have encountered the species.
