*1: Trembath Mills near Newlyn, 1842, WC (OXF) (Paton 1969a: 690).

Habitat notes from C&S are as follows. Common on soil just above water of streams, ditches, river banks (also a canal bank and lake bank), in flood-zone and a little above it, almost unshaded to rather heavily shaded by deciduous trees. Often on silted rocks in and at edges of streams. Soil on banks and slopes near streams and well away from them, e.g. on field edges under trees, on quarried slope under trees, laneside and trackside banks, in old quarries, in churchyards, cemeteries, in sheltered places in gardens, in shelter under scrub on slope above sea-cliff, floor of damp Grey Willow carr, on damp soil on flushed sea-cliff. Associates include Anthoceros punctatus, Conocephalum conicum s. str., Dicranella rufescens, Didymodon insulanus, Didymodon tophaceus, Oxyrrhynchium hians, Kindbergia praelonga, Fissidens bryoides var. bryoides, Fossombronia pusilla, Homalia trichomanoides, Nardia scalaris, Pellia endiviifolia, Pellia epiphylla, Phaeoceros laevis, Pohlia annotina, Thamnobryum alopecurum.

 

Also on soil on tops, ledges and at bases of walls, low on 'hedges', and in crevices of masonry, but generally in humid and sheltered or partly shaded places, e.g. about old mill, on and inside ruins, near ruined buildings on old mine spoil (with Barbula convoluta), in moss carpet on open area of old copper-mine spoil, on soil well shaded under overhanging concrete of ruin of mine building, on bank in cemetery, on old decayed mortar in partly shaded wall, on a gravelly lay-by. Locally plentiful on unshaded sandy soil over old mine-spoil in and beside trackways in sand-dunes at Upton Towans and near Godrevy (occasionally mixed with Petalophyllum ralfsii). Large patches on vertical masonry of side of mill race in spray from 'waterfall'; growing 2-3 cm out from substrate here, in contrast to usual almost flat mats. Twice seen as patches on thin film of clay and old concrete of walls of ruins; lightly to moderately shaded. Patch on vertical stone at base of wall. Thin soil low on wall, part shaded. Soil on area of old china clay spoil, but closely associated with small patch of calcareous masonry debris and not in acidic areas around; unshaded. Partly bare, part shaded, horizontal soil under Grey Willows on old mining ground (with Oxyrrhynchium hians, Oxyrrhynchium pumilum).

 

All but very young plants nearly always with gemmae. Not seen c.fr.
