Inflated-margin Fissidens Fissidens ventricosus

This curious aquatic moss is known on Salt Spring Island only from only one location. It has a scattered distribution along the west coast of North America in rapidly running streams. On Salt Spring Island, it grows in the creek together with large-leaf fissidens (F. grandifrons), a bigger species that stands out with longer stems and dark green pointy leaves.
