Bryum bonanza in artificial dune slacks

Margam Tip currently has a good amount of bare wet sand around the newest pools, much of which is covered with a bewildering array of Bryum forms. B. dichotomum and B. gemmiferum appear to be the two most abundant species, but there's quite a bit of B. argenteum, a little B. pseudotriquetrum and in the drier areas, what I suspect is frequent B. algovicum. Some julaceous shoots resemble B. dyffrynense, though id as gemmiferum or indeterminate seems inevitable! I'll hopefully find time over the weekend to take a closer look at the collections I made.
