Carlingnose Point Hedwigia

A quickie visit to Carlingnose Point turned up Hedwigia stellata, new to NT18 (as per NBN Gateway). It's small and neat, branched, with leaves c.1-1.5mm, nerveless, entire, papillose apart from a yellow area at the centre of the base, and bearing a toothed, hyaline hairpoint. Shoot tips look pale even from distance.
