BRYOPHYTES

County Recorder: Richard Fisk
Dicranum scoparium

Most moss recording in the County has been co-ordinated by the British Bryological Society, Richard Fisk has undertaken a major survey of Suffolk and there were over 74,000 records on the SBIS database when the results were published in A Flora of Suffolk.. Since then, Richard has continued to add new records and the Suffolk total is now over 84,900 records.

The excellent BBS Field Guide to Mosses and Liverworts of Britain and Ireland should enable recorders to identify most species with with a hand lens in the field.
Further guidance on recording and identification can also be found on the BBS website
