Vorige Art/previous species (Left arrowball from Animation City 1991)     Diphyscium foliosum  (HEDW.) D.MOHR     Nächste Art/next species (Right arrowball from Animation City 1991)
 

Fam.: Musci / Mosses      

Genus:  Diphyscium  D.MOHR
 

Authors:
   HEDW.:  Johannes Hedwig (1730 - 1799), German physician and botanist
   D.MOHR:  Daniel Matthias Heinrich Mohr (1780 - 1808), botanist from Kiel (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)
 

Etymology:
   Diphyscium:   di = two, physke = stomach
   foliosum:   leafy
 

The relative big spore capsules of the Nut Moss are growing "at ground level", not on a short stalk as those of the closely related Bug-on-a-Stick Mosses. If pressure impacts the ripe capsule, because e.g. a rain drop falls on it, the spores are ejected far up to a meter.
