The non-bryological highlight of the day.
Sunday, 4 September 2016
Just in case anyone feels like getting their eye in for Pylaisia, there's an easily visited colony at Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean. A youngish Ash just up from the play area supports extensive patches of this uncommon (but increasing) moss, with copious sporophytes at the moment. I'd recommend the caves too, not least because of the abundant moss around the underground lights (Eucladium, Gyroweisia and Rhynchostegiella noted, but there could well be others).
