    Sarah, Viggo (our 4 year old son) and I were on a short scavenger hunt an hour ago, looking for things that Viggo can use in his nursery for making Christmas decorations. We did find a lot of very usable items, among it we have quite a bit of mosses.

    I'm going to post some pictures here of the moss we found, and as I have no clue as to what mosses they are I'll invite you to name them (NO, not Alice and Bob :p).


    Pic I: 3 possibly 4 different mosses in this one, closeup of the different types follows.

    Pic III.

    Pic IV.

    Pic V: Same as Pic I, just from a different position.

    Pic VI.

    Pic VII: Really like this one.

    I hope the pictures are good enough to see what they might be.

    Mossious Iikeus.

    If you send those photos to your Botanical Gardens they should be able to tell you what they are.

    Nice find.. :) I'm far from an expert and it's not always easy to identify mosses correctly.. The first pictures are Haircap moss probably Polytrichum commune.
    Further down (pic III) it could be some Mnium sp. (pic VI) is also very common but forgot it's name.. (pic VII) is indeed realy nice moss, myself not yet found it around my place.. I also love the fern like appearance. It most likely is Tamarisk moss (Thuidium tamariscinum)
    :)
