  1. I'm not sure, but don't you need a scope or a view of multiple stages for an ID? Posted one month ago
    1. Yes, as far as I know. Usually, for Hemitrichia calyculata, I see the more mature form as well. But, I didn't this time. So, it's either T. decipiens or completely immature Hemitrichia calyculata. I think one is said to have a more solid stem, but I don't know for sure. Posted one month ago
