The British Bryological Society will shortly be publishing a field guide
to British bryophytes. This is a collaborative and evolving project
involving many of our members who have contributed brief written
accounts, drawings and digital images of approximately 350 mosses and
200 liverworts. The accounts and images are reviewed by the editors and
are also available on the field guide website for anybody who wishes
to contribute comments on the accounts or images. In essence they
represent an online identification resource created in the way suggested
by Norbert.

The pages are (mostly) available as pdf files via a dedicated website
that can be accessed via the BBS home page or at . Since they are pdfs you
wouldn't be able to locate them via a Google Image search. Each species
occupies one page. I think that they are currently in the process of
being updated so some of the pages are not available at the moment. You
can also see which species still require images and I'm sure the editors
would be grateful if anyone was willing to contribute images to fill in
the gaps.

best wishes
