Jungermannia rubra

I was able to key this out with the help of David Wagner's liverword ID CD.  The CD has pictures and is easier for beginners than the standard key.  This is my first Jungermannia find that I have been able to key out.

There are pretty much no pictures of this liverwort in the web, so I decided I would post some.  This is probably the same liverwort that Lalita Calabria found at Glacial on a class field trip.
