Clyne Gardens tree stump

There's nothing particularly remarkable about this stump, which supported a modest selection of typical stump species, including some nice patches of Lepidozia reptans (photo below). However, one thing I've not encountered before was finding Microlejeunea ulicina growing on the shoots of Polytrichastrum formosum, the latter acting as pseudo-phorophyte for the normally arboreal M. ulicina.
