Orthotrichum Lyellii, Cullaloe, December 2015

A surprise late addition to the reserve list (and the 94th bryophyte), this bristle-moss was noticed just above head height while looking for epiphytic lichens on Willows. always a pleasure to see, especially close up.

This one is only the third county record, with one from 1967 and another more modern one from Tentsmuir.
