    unfortunatly I only have a small steam of it. here is some picture:

    It's actually a liverwort near as I can tell from the image.
    I've found it in several spots, a lot in Florida, it's very small, maybe 2-3mm wide?

    Keep it cool and not in intense light. It's all over the Ichetucknee river, most mistake it as a moss.


    The lobes are not truly dissected. They re attached to each other by the thallus, as well as by the "stem".
