Asterella species;


Beauty of Bryophyte : Attachments (1). 3 posts by 3 authors.

Bryophytes are considered as least beautiful plants by angiosperm photographers.

However, I saw this liverwort in my recent tour in Upper Alaknanda Valley in Garhwal. Now it looks that these insignificant looking creepers can also be made a target of camera. I am completely ignorant of Taxonomy of Bryophytes and only on the basis of comparing few photographs believe that it may be an Asterella species.

Nice Catch … These are pioneers in succession. How we can ignore these little beautiful plants…
