Valley Wood, Penllergaer

I deliberately left my hand-lens at home today, so no bryophytes were recorded during a pleasantly warm walk in the woods. I did however note some lovely drapes of Usea articulatus on several branches of a large oak at SS62739867. I've walked past this tree plenty times before and I can't believe it's taken me this long to notice the Usnea. Photo taken from the main path on the west side of the river, the tree being on the east side, should anyone be interested in viewing it.


  1. I can believe it, because until Jamie Bevan noticed it along the Tennant Canal Towpath at Jersey Marine, I'd been walking past it for several years. What I do find difficult to believe is Barry Stewart without a hand lens.
