    What?

    I don't really understand your question, and there's no photo attached to your post...

    Since you need a microscope to identify some of the characteristics that define the species of Sphagnum moss I doubt you'll find anything very helpful.

    A list of the species can be found here
    http://culturesheet.org/sphagnaceae:sphagnum
    http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sphagnum

    You can always try a Google image source on each species but I doubt you'll find anything for 99% of them. I have no idea of how complete or up-to-date these lists are. The number of known species varies depending on which taxonomist you talk to.

    A good resource: http://www.botanik.univie.ac.at/~temsch/basics.html

    From the above:

    Classification of sphagna takes experience, and is sometimes impossible without the aid of a microscope. The following criteria are applied to distinguish between species:

    Number of branches per fascicle
    Number of pendent and spreading branches, and their degree of differentiation
    Shape of branch leaves (squarrose, hooded, etc.)
    Direction of stem leaves (upward, downward or horizontal)
    Shape of the head
    Size and prominence of the terminal bud
    Secondary pigments
    Shape and location of chlorocytes
    Spiral fortification of hyalocytes
    Number, size, and fortification of pores
    Structure of hyalocyte cell walls (papillose or other ornamentations)
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
