Huperzia australiana 7361 Mount Studholme 7_reduced

The closest I got to collecting bryophytes on this trip was collecting specimens of the inappropriately-named “clubmosses”, such as this Huperzia australiana. They are not mosses at all, but vascular plants like ferns and seed plants. Huperzia australiana occurs in alpine or other cold areas, where there is a bit of ground moisture.
