Racopilum cuspidigerum

Racopilum cuspidigerum can be found on rocks, tree bases, rotting wood and soil.

Fossil records indicate that mosses and liverworts are ancient and can be traced back to some of the first land plants.

Mosses have the ability to survive very dry conditions – even when water losses are up to 90%.

Racopilum cuspidigerum possess a bright orange stem and jagged green to brown leaves.
