How is a Leafy Liverwort different from a Moss




(This is a page from the book project i'm working on)

Microscopically, most liverworts also have things called 'oil bodies' in their cells and mosses do not;
and mixed with the spores are spiral shaped structures called elaters which help in dispersal. These are not found in moss capsules either.
