My California moss explorations have started close to home. This is an Orthotrichum growing on the tree in my back yard. Some of the other tufts had small sporophytes topped by plicate calyptrae (calyptrae with folds). Unfortunately they resisted my photography efforts, but this little patch without sporophytes came out well.  


1 - Single click on the image to open it up in a new window. (If you use the image directly from the blog post you will lose a lot of resolution.)

2 - Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background" or "Use as Desktop Picture". The wording may vary.

3 - If the image does not fit your desktop neatly, you may have to adjust the image (Mac: System Preferences - Desktop and Screen Saver - Desktop; Windows: Control Panel - Display - Desktop) and choose "Fill screen" as the display mode of your background image.
