Mosses


Holomitrium crispulum - Amboró, Ecuador

Moss stems may be branched and have green leaves that are usually one cell thick. Often there is a bundle of cells (costa) present.
Moss leaves vary greatly in appearance, (including shiny, dull; red, green, or yellow), when they are moist or dry, and often change in orientation.
