When I walk around in the bush, I'm always taking pictures of things that catch my eye. Here's a moss that I thought was unusual. It looked a bit like a Tribble from the original Star Trek series. I'm not positive, but I think it's a Cushion Moss.
It definitely looks like a puffy cushion. I'm not sure why it got the name White Cushion Moss (Leucobyrum glaucum), because it's definitely a bright green. Maybe because some have a whitish cast. This moss grows in clumps 2-7 centimetres (1-3 inches) tall. If clumps grow together into a mat they give it a lumpy appearance. This specimen does not yet have any sporophytes on tall stalks for reproduction. Look for it in shady, moist areas on the forest floor or decaying trees. You can also purchase it to add to your garden. -- Margy
