Scarce in vc1, where recorded only on wet, acidic
heathland. On Woon Gumpus Common seen as colonist on sparsely
vegetated areas of wet peat where vegetation had been burnt
some years previously; on Chykembro Common it formed low
hummocks or carpets in wettest areas on heath; near Carn
Galver it was found along a damp, little-used pathway in wet
heath and was absent from areas of tall Molinia caerulea
dominated vegetation nearby.
In vc2 often common in wet parts and submerged in
pools of mires (associates include Sphagnum
capillifolium, Sphagnum fallax, Sphagnum papillosum,
small Carex spp.
angustifolium, but most often locally dominant in shallow
depressions); also in flushed areas on hillsides, with other
sphagna, low grasses and sedges and patchy Juncus effusus, and in
small mires or other hollows in wet heath. Several records
from wet heathy areas among old china clay workings or
adjoining them, including floor of shallow ditch. Associates
commonly recorded include Sphagnum denticulatum,
exannulatum; Calluna vulgaris, Erica tetralix, Eriophorum
Occasionally (?) c.fr.: capsules immature 6,
dehiscing 6, dehisced 6, 8.
