Hypopterygium tamarisciFamily: Hypopterygiaceae
Genus: Hypopterygium
Common name: Umbrella Moss
ALA reference

This attractive little moss is growing in several areas along the moister gully area. As the common name suggests the moss grows like an umbrella with a stalk supporting a fanlike spread of branches. Although I’ve watched this moss for several years I am yet to see it produce any fruiting bodies. (November 2010)
