So hopefully starting with the (relatively) easy-to-ID species (bound to get them wrong now): Common feather moss Eurhynchium praelongum (left) on a hidden tree stump in the little bluebell wood. For what it's worth, Ordinary moss or Rough-stalked feather-moss Brachythecium rutabulum is also present in the same wood.
Grey-cushioned grimmia Grimmia pulvinata (left) one of several mosses (many even?) on the local church wall or around the churchyard and possibly Wall screw moss Tortula muralis out of the picture below it .....
Talking of which .... Wall screw moss Tortula muralis ditto - same old church, same old church wall .....
Then there's Silky wall feather moss Homalothecium sericeum (I think).... yet another one on the church wall as well as on one of the mysterious marker stones aka my plot boundary with the Herstmonceux Castle grounds.
These mosses are in a chestnut coppice clearing .... think this is Neat feather moss Pseudoscleropodium purum ...... possibly with Common hair moss Polytrichum commune …… but there’s also a third moss in there too – the very pale and very fine-leaved species?
Just a couple more plants to add this week: Common Water Starwort Callitriche stegnalis (in a little pool under an old log near my plot). There are quite a few of these Water Starworts so I hope it's not an aggregate sp. This one's got pointy leaves .... which seems slightly different from all other photos I've seen on-line recently. Lastly, and not before time, the bizarrely named Nipplewort Lapsana communis which is very common around the plot - and just about everywhere else too. So common, even I'm calling it a weed - which must be saying something.
While I'm at it - two more common fungi on twigs and sticks in the bluebell wood: Peniophora quercina (a lichen-like fungus on oak twigs, sticks and branches) and Peniophora lycii (another lichen-like fungus - this one's even more like a lichen) again, on various deciduous twigs and sticks in the bluebell wood .... and I had all that lot ear-marked as kindling for the wood-burner.
Slug-like progress onto 237 species. Which reminds me, I'm back at the plot (and square) for a day or two as from today ....... and the sun's shining!
