Dicranella Moss (Dicranella heteromalla)


The two- celled species forms 1 to 2 cm high, rarely also higher, dense lawns from yellow-green to non-corrosive plants. The leaves are at the bottom not or only a little abashed. They are extended into a long, pectoral and crescent-shaped tip, which is completely filled by the leaf rib. As a rule, the leaves stand clearly one-sidedly on the trunk. The blade edge is perforated from the tip to far down.
