Botany picture #102: Fossombronia

Another liverwort from the pleasantly untidy lawn in front of our building: Fossombronia (Fossomboniaceae), Australian Capital Territory, 2013. This was shown to me by the bryologist colleague together with the Riccias but merely as an aside. Still nice to see. Although it looks leafy at first sight, it is a simple thalloid liverwort; it merely has a very strongly lobed thallus.
