Acrocladium chlamydophyllum

Family: Lembophyllaceae

Acrocladium chlamydophyllum has creeping stems that form pale yellow-green clumps. It is easily recognizable by its cylindrical curved branches with closely overlapping, glossy leaves. Branches taper to a sharp point. Leaves are 1-1.5 mm long, very concave, about as wide as long and have a blunt tip.

Widespread in New Zealand on soil, stumps, logs, often in damp, shadded sites.
