Bazzania tayloriana

Family: Lepidoziaceae

Bazzania tayloriana plants are small and fragile with overlapping leaves with strongly curved margins and truncate, 3-toothed tips. The presence of a waxy coating on the leaf surface gives the plants a milky blue-green appearance. Underleaves are tiny and membranous, usually with three bluntly-rounded lobes.

Found in damp forest throughout New Zealand on logs, base of trees and soil and especially common on tree ferns.
