This is another moss from my March trip to Yosemite National Park. Since I found it in a park, I don't have collection to help with the identification and it doesn't look like a species I encountered on the SOBEFREE foray. Thus I don't have an identification for this spectacular little plant. 

Does it look familiar to anyone? A pleurocarpous moss growing on granite in the Sierra Nevada mountains. If you have a guess please share it in the comments section. Thanks!

May Desktop Calendar

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.
