  • date of photo  Mar 19, 2016
  • location   On a natural soil bank with other small mosses and grass near the dining building at CYO Camp near Occidental (Sonoma County, California, US)
  • family Pottiaceae
  • notes   This very small 'ephemeral' moss is seen here with a Bryum species. The Acaulon plants are the four bulb-like brown objects near the center of the image, and two more are visible towards and at the bottom right. The plants are probably young since the capsules are still covered by the leaves. The greener moss plants with longer hair points on the leaves are the Bryum species.
