Common Haircap (Polytrichum commune)

Is moss just a green carpet on the woodland floor as far as you are concerned? Take a closer look, this species is especially worth your time and attention and is quite easy to identify. Known as the Common Haircap it forms large communities (or communes) of tiny, dense, fir-tree like plants and it the density of those individual plants that make it distinctive.
