Pleurozium schreberi

A moss of steep, moist slopes. I've seen it with Dicranum scoparium and Polytrichum ohioense.

A nice red stem near the south shore of Griffy Lake, 12/30/03. The long, thin leaves in background are of Dicranum.

Microscopic view of a leaf apex, 1/9/04.

Microscopic, mid-leaf, 1/9/04.

Cells towards the leaf base, 1/9/04.
