Fox-tail Feather-moss (Thamnobryum alopecurum)

This 'normally' stands up like a tree. A tree-like moss. But on this occasion it was lying flat down a steep roadside bank.

Having been to Wales recently where it grows in streams and looks very different from its 'normal' self this one also took a while to identify.

This is a branch leaf whereas the stem leaves have a much broader end close to the stem.
