Bank Haircap Moss

Polytrichum formosum

A fairly distinctive medium-sized moss with bright green leaves which are 1cm long with a pointed tip which are arranged around the stems in a spiral fashion.

Found all year round in deciduous woodland, heaths and moorland. Frequent and widespread throughout.

Photographs taken January and March 2014, local wood, Staffordshire.
