    Re: Moss From Sulawesi

    The "Sulawesi moss" looks like a leafy liverwort, although it appears to have a feature that makes it mosslike (the costa). It will be interesting to see how all of them look when grown submerged for a while.

    Hi, Joydiv,

    Are you growing these mosses in your tanks? If you are and the mosses are able to survive underwater, I can help you identify them.

    I find the names you gave the mosses interesting. Towuti and Gorontalo - are these the names of the places where you found the moss?

    The Sulwesi moss is probably plagiomnium affine

    Hi Loh

    Yup have them in my tank for close to 2 weeks now. The names are given by the exporter here. Could well be location names, I am not too sure.
    Will try to take some shots of them in water but I guess will need more time to see how they grow.

    Are you able to identify them or get Prof Tan to do it, at least the genus they belong to? I can pass you some samples during aquarama.

    Hi, KT,

    If you are coming for aquarama, I can meet you to collect the mosses. I will also try to arrange for you to meet the professor personally, so you can watch how he goes about identifying the mosses. But whether this works out would depend very much on the professor's schedule. He's a busy man so I can't promise you will get to meet him.

    It is important that you are able to confirm the locations where you found the mosses. Without the locations, the professor will only be able to give you the genus names. If the mosses can take to life underwater, I think most of us would prefer to know the species names as well.

    Hi Loh

    Thanks for your help, see you at aquarama.
    Location wise, the supplier are keeping quiet about it. They simply mentioned Sulawesi.
