Richard Tullis, with whom I was mushrooming yesterday, transplanted several clumps of native rush in his backyard. They had sheaves of dead moist stems; on one (and only one) of the stems there was a series of M. limosus, spread along the length of 25 cm. It was impossible to take a decent photo in situ, so I removed the stem and put in on a big green leaf of another plant that was growing right there.

What is the stratum. At first I thought it was a liverwort, but it looks more like a dried sedge or cottongrass.

Fantastic, btw.

Glad it’s appreciated
