    Please note that Sphagnum natans is listed as a Threatened Native Species by the State of New York. Sarracenia purpurea is listed as a Exploitably vulnerable native plants.

    Restrictions on collecting these plants apply.

    (e) It is a violation for any person, anywhere in the state, to pick, pluck, sever, remove, damage by the application of herbicides or defoliants, or carry away, without the consent of the owner, any protected plant. Each protected plant so picked, plucked, severed, removed, damaged or carried away shall constitute a separate violation.

    If you got that sphagnum nutans is threatened from the list in that article I believe you misread the the name on the restricted plant: Sparganium natans, Small Bur-reed. If not the current moss im trading with 100% certainty is S. rubellum, which I could not find any restrictions on when i first collected it last year. As for the moss im trying to get permissions to collect, I haven't really even got an up close look at it and i would definitely identify it before i collected. I made the mistake of collecting a small amount of the rubellum before identifying it without even thinking about regulations, I believe Whimgrinder was the one that pointed it out last time. I wont make that mistake again.

    Off-topic here...

    Is there any classification key somewhere online where we could use to identify red species of sphagnum moss? TIA!
