Bryophyte and Lichen of the Year 2017

Ctenidium molluscum and Variospora flavescens are bryophyte and lichen of the year 2017 (text in german).

On the general annual meeting in 2004, BLAM members for the first time elected a lichen of the year. And since 2005, both a bryophyte and a lichen of the year are elected to attract the attention of the public to these small and in many cases endangered organisms.

Look here for recent species of the year:

2008: Orthotrichum pulchellum und Letharia vulpina
2009: Leucobryum glaucum und Cladonia rangiferina
2010: Polytrichum commune und Dibaeis baeomyces
2011: Thuidium abietinum und Fulgensia fulgens
2012: Buxbaumia viridis und Lobaria pulmonaria
2013: Marchantia polymorpha und Peltigera didactyla
2014: Hedwigia ciliata und Rhizocarpon geographicum
2015: Schistostega pennata und Psilolechia lucida
2016: Sphagnum magellanicum und Icmadophila ericetorum

 

Michael Lüth has created a website showing all tables of his famous Atlas of the Bryophytes of Germany Vol. I to VII - "Bildatlas der Moose Deutschlands"!

Please visit www.bildatlas-moose.de to view the nice colour plates at 700x1000 pixels resolution. This is a huge gift to all who are interested in bryophytes! Thank you very much, dear Michael!
