Cape Thread Moss (Orthodontium lineare)

A sample of Cape Thread Moss from the vertical of an old wooden fence post.

In the photo below, the right hand end is the top of the sample, so if you imagone the moss growing out of a vertical plane, the seta grow downwards out of the plant so that the capsules point down like all the leaf shoots.
