To confirm the ID of this

To confirm the ID of this species you'll need to observe the capsule lid (shortly pointed in H. androi, beaked in other species). Nice to see mosses on iSpot!

OK, thanks

I'm steadily trying to get a better sense of what mosses are in our local woods. Gradually getting my eye in, but it's a slow process

What is the most difficult

What is the most difficult with them is to admit that not everything can be identified!

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,
