Value of species
Small plants with more or less pinnate shoots, and the nerve extends into the leaf tip. slender shoots (2–6 cm long), forming thin, intricate, flat patches
of a rather open texture, or mixed with other mosses. The branches are widely
spaced and tend to spread widely from the stem, though characteristically curved
when dry. The leaves are shrunken and loosely erect or appressed when dry, but
spread when moist. Stem leaves are about 1.5 mm long, broadly triangular in the
lower half, abruptly narrowed at the base, and end in a long, slender point which
appears thread-like when dry. The leaf base runs onto the stem, appearing as wide,
conspicuous wings, which are visible with a hand lens when moist. Branch leaves are
smaller and more egg-shaped, with a shorter tip.
