Warrington Plant Group at Lymm Dam – the bryophytes

We had a successful trip here last year to look at flowering plants and thought why not come back to see the mosses and liverworts too?  We went on to record 46 species of bryophytes, a new group best 😀

Species of the day was Zygodon viridissimus growing on the dam wall, but it was an especially good day for liverworts including Calypogeia arguta, Calypogeia muelleriana, Pellia endiviifolia, Pellia epiphylla s.s., both common species of Lophocolea, Cephalozia bicuspidata and two species of Metgeria !
