for most Arcyria but some Arcyria can expand to be 15mm long for example: Arcyria magna http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Arcyria+magna , Arcyria oerstedii http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Arcyria+oerstedii and Arcyria poeltii http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Arcyria+poeltii. The color does not look right for a Stemonitidaceae.

awful long sporangia for Arcyria, don’t you think?

A. nutans and A. oblevata are considered the same thing
