Timmia austriaca

One day while walking home for lunch, I noticed that there seemed to be a significant number of different mosses in the short distance between my office and home. I decided it might be interesting to take pictures of all the different kinds that I can find in the area. These were growing on a rotting log at the edge of our front lawn. Mosses can be difficult to identify and the name given above is my best guess based upon my fieldguides.
