    A small portion of a colony of Conocephalum conicum spotted on a visit to the Scottish Borders. The thallus on this is huge compared to the ones I posted previously.

    I shot this today on the river Meden in Pleasley Vale. I identified three species in a very short distance.

    Cool

    I returned to Pleasley Vale this morning and continued a little way further down stream until the path veered away from the river. I found a further three thalloid species but unfortunately I was unable to photograph them in situ as my position in each case was a little precarious. I retained some small samples by reaching down around corners and will grow them on to aid and/or confirm ID. One I was happy to label up as Conocephalum salebrosum which I found in a dry ditch next to an old stone wall. The other two are as yet unidentified although I suspect one is a Pellia, probably P. epiphylla which will need to be confirmed. The Pellia can be a little difficult to get to species level.
    These add to Marchantia polymorpha, Conocephalum conicum and Lunularia cruciata from the visit in the video.

    Incidentally, I stopped off at a nursery on my way to the field trip and they had some really terrific specimens of Marchantia polymorpha on sale in pots. Well OK they weren't the plants that were on the label but they were far more interesting than the plants that were

    Gasp!

    Liverworts are NOT moss. Both are Bryophytes ( non-vascular plants) however
