Fontinalis length

Subject: BRYONET: bryophyte records

There was a picture of Fontinalis, being held by Jack Sharp, in one issue of
the Bryological Times, but with a quick search today I did not locate it. It
was about 2 meters long, and if we count branches...
I think there are a few other references to record size (large, but not
small) in several issues of the Times, with a series some years ago.
