First sighting of the liverwort Rivulariella gemmipara in Washington state

I sent my specimin of Rivulariella gemmipara  to David Wagner and he confirmed that it is indeed Rivulariella gemmipara. This is the first sighting of it in Washington state and the only sighting of it between Oregon and Alaska.  David Wagner is going to write this up and publish it.  I will be a co-author.. Yay!  I'm getting published.  Here are my pictures of Rivulariella gemmipara found near the pond of the false prophet last week.
