Another Moss

This moss was located in an area where we have had some small fires of wood and a little debris.   It seems to be mostly on top of a pile of ashes.

    Funaria hygrometrica. The seta twists with changes in humidity thus hygrometic.

    • Thanks. I have some pretty good moss books with keys but it takes me a while to go through them. There are not a lot of books with good photographs of mosses and since the mosses and liverworts change so much in appearance a photo book might not be be that useful anyway. Thanks for your help.
