   PATON:  Jean Annette Paton (1929 - ), British botanist with main focus on mosses
   DAMSH.:  Kell Damsholt (1938 - ), Danish bryologist

Hornworts have a rosette shaped thallus, which can hardly be seen on the photos. The sporophytes are few centimeters long and are standing upright. The moss occurs in Central and Southern Europe.
