Lower plants at Rhossili

 Encalypta vulgaris (Common Extinguisher-moss)
I was lucky enough to accompany Sam Bosanquet on one of his CCW monitoring visits to the limestone outcrops on Rhossili headland yesterday and was amazed by the diversity of bryophytes, many of which are scarce representatives of the Mediterranean element of our bryophyte flora. Very many thanks to Sam for his time and patience. For more shots of this fantastic assemblage check out http://moonmoths.blogspot.com/

Frullania tamarisci (Tamarisk Scalewort)
