BRYONET: Protonema toxicity


Dear bryonetters,
I have been consulted by a company of bottled water because they have
found moss protonema in some bottles and cases of vomits and sickness
have been reported. I wonder if you have heard of any illness symptom or
toxicity related to moss protonema.
With best wishes,
