One of the first things to do when beginning to identify Sphagnums is deciding whether the branch leaves are hooded or not. In this case the branch leaves have no 3 dimensionality about them and are therefor not hooded.

The next thing is do to pinch the top bud (capitulum) away from the branches it sits on.

If it leaves a ruff of stem leaves like the one you can see in the image above it is likely to be Sphagnum fimbriatum.

Sphagnum fimbriatum is also quite brittle and the capitulum comes away easily in your fingers. Some Sphagnums are much tougher.

To go a step further you need to look at the shape of the stem leaves.

In this case the stem leaf is twice as wide as it is long.

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.
