Afon Tawe at Glais

Fruiting Schistidium platyphyllum showing the short perichaetial leaves; good patches noted growing on the large Limestone boulders on the left hand bank of the river just downstream of the bridge.


  1. What lovely, classic Schistidium platyphyllum! Note the very short hairpoint on the perichaetial leaves, as is usual on this species and helping distinguish it from S rivulare.

  2. That looks very similar habitat and substrate to where I found it on the Taff in Cardiff.
