“Selaginella” by rhoing


There are several species of Selaginella, a clubmoss found naturally in the Canary Islands, the Azores and parts of mainland Africa. Common names include Krauss' spikemoss, Krauss′s clubmoss, spreading selaginella and African clubmoss. I just like the patterns and structure of this plant as it doesn't seem to have really "woody" branches or twigs. But it's a club *moss* or spike *moss* so I guess I shouldn't be surprised!
