Is this a Bryophyta member?
Bangalore outskirts

may be Bryum (moss)


Most probably it is the Bryum argenteum but kindly display their capsule which are the main identification character for mosses


Thank you very much.

I will try and collect the plant and take more photos soon.


Yes, it is a bryophyte (moss), most likely ‘silver moss’ – Bryum argenteum!
