Phascum cuspidatum (Cuspidate Earth-moss) in arable field near Margam,
Tortula truncata (Common Pottia) in arable field near Margam
Phascum cuspidatum is often described as a common arable species, but there are few records of it in VC41. Roy described it as rare in Glamorgan and Sam has commented on its scarcity in Carmarthenshire (compared to Pembrokeshire). However, there's lots of arable land in the Vale of Glamorgan that must be suitable for this predominantly lowland species.
