Remarks
Detail
Tall, slender liverwort, shoots up to 5 cm long and 1.4 mm wide, with leaves up to 2 mm wide and long. It holds its leaves in an unusual (if difficult to describe) way, with the whole leaf looking convex when viewed from the front. Anastrepta often grows as single stems through tufts of other bryophytes, so it can be difficult to spot in the field.
