Plagiothecium latebricola

 Drawing this moss today....an unusual moss of rotten logs and occasionally tree bases in swampy areas is one i'm always happy to find. It's a fairly small moss, but once you have a search image, you can often pick this out due to its small size, leaf shape and the tiny brood bodies clustered at the leaf tips.
