Botany picture #150: Mniodendron comosum
Another picture from our holiday in Tasmania last year. Patrick Dalton, bryologist at the University of Tasmania, was kind enough to identify this pleurocarpous moss as Mniodendron comosum, commonly known as 'palm moss'. He added that it was one of the "most handsome mosses in our flora", and I think I agree.
