Fringed Heartwort (Ricciarpos natans) just surfaced from the winter underwater world.

Tiny hearts spreading across the surface of the pingo.

A complete lack of the purple ventral scales seen in the images below from last June. Clear new out growths seen on the floating bodies, which can be seen in the above image.

Slightly more clearly in the enlarged images here.

Bolander's Screw-moss (Tortula bolanderi)

A moss new to Britain found in 2021 by Mary Ghullam

Known from Macaronesia (Canary Isles & Madeira) and a few scattered localities in Southwest Europe but is more widely distributed in Western North America.

It was first discovered on rocks near San Francisco Bay, California, and was described as a new species, Barbula bolander, by Leo Lesquereaux in a paper read to the American Philosophical Society
in 1863. The species was named after Henry Bolander (1831-1897), a teacher originally from Germany who had settled in San Francisco in 1861 and subsequently became state botanist for California.

This is one of two sites for this species in Britain.
