Observed: 16th April 2013 By: Sophie Cochrane

It was really common in the upland area of Barrow Fell in the Lake District. Area was affected by a fire 10 years ago- not sure if this is an influence.It was much more common at study sites of unaffected areas and not as common or found at burnt sites.

Yes looks like Hypnum.

Yes looks like Hypnum. Doesn't appear to be jutlandicaum based on the golden colour and lack of sheen. I would say it is cupressiforme.

Bryophyte tag

With respect to the good folk that are/might have helped you in the likely ID of this moss, I am requesting that you add the tag Bryophyte as this will act as a further aid by virtue of attracting more of those who specialise in mosses and liverworts. Thanks in advance,
