Value of species
A very slender pleurocarp; it is so small that the shoots appear like little, wiry threads.They form thin, mid- to dark green patches, usually on calcareous rock. The leaves are only about 0.25 mm long, broadly spearhead-shaped, tapering at the tip, and held erect or appressed. They are too small for any further details to be observed in the field. However, capsules (about 1 mm long) are often present, and their strongly curved shape and more or less horizontal position are very useful field characters.
