long Sphagnum majus

Correction: The very long Sphagum from Newfoundland was S. majus, not S.
macrophyllum. So it certainly lived up to its name.

When I was in Newfoundland, I remember collecting a specimen of Sphagnum
macrophyllum which was more than a meter long; we had it dried and attached
onto a bristle-board for showing its extreme length.
