Mystery moss rediscovered

A botanical puzzle more than 150 years old could soon be solved, thanks to a discovery by a second-year botany student in Queensland’s far north.

James Cook University student Megan Grixti found a population of Sorapilla papuana, an extremely rare moss, growing on a single tree in remote rainforest near Mount Lewis, west of Mossman.

Sorapilla is a mystery to botanists because its features are unlike any other moss,” expedition leader David Meagher of The University of Melbourne said.

“This plant is so rare it’s known to us only through a few herbarium specimens, which are too old to yield useful DNA samples, so at the moment we can only guess where it fits in the story of plant evolution,” Mr Meagher said.

Another piece of the big puzzle, very cool.

Yeah! I always thought mosses were all green apparently not! It will hopefully settle exactly where these mosses fit in the overall scheme of things!
