Dicranoloma menziesii

Family: Dicranaceae

Dicranoloma menziesii has long and slender leaves and may be distinguished from other species in the genus by capsules borne on short (10 mm or less) stalks (setae) so that they are often overtopped by the leaves.

Widespread in New Zealand as an epiphyte on trunks and branches of trees, exposed roots and also on rock.
