    A Bryophyte tray

    On my fairly frequent perambles if I come across a new area of Bryophytes I take a small sample ( around 2cm x 2 cm) for identification. It saves lying on the ground with a x10 or X20 loupe or constantly bending down. ( The bending down is easy it's the getting up again.) I do keep some of these small samples if I've been unable to identify the plants and add them all to a tray with the location. It's amazing how some plants adapt very quickly.
    This is representative one such tray, it's from this week.

    I use quarter trays so that does indicate just how small these Bryophytes are.

    Very nice! It looks very similar to a tropical species a friend brought back from Puerto Rico several years ago. Sadly to my knowledge nobody was able to keep it very long.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
