Plant scientist interested in the biology of bryophytes and their fungal symbionts. My doctoral studies investigate how genes regulate moss development.

I curate the Bryophytes of Britain and Ireland project group here on iNat, attempting to ensure the data are as good as possible. All of my IDs are hypotheses based on photographs provided and as such there is an error rate (I'm only human). It's worth being aware that these little things are not always identifiable to species or even genera from photographs, but we can often get closer than "Bryophyta" for most of them.

I check over a large number of bryophyte observations and sometimes do not provide reasons for ID because I do not always have much time. If you would like to know why an ID was suggested, feel free to comment or to message me, or try Googling the species (Latin names). I have less time for iNat than I used to so please tag me if you want me to take a look at observations – a lot slip through the net. If my comments seem curt, this is not intentional – I am just usually in a rush and would rather provide some feedback than none :)

Happy to help anybody get started with bryology, particularly in the British Isles as I am most familiar with the plants here.

My website / blog on bryophilous ascomycetes (fungi) in the British Isles:

I manage and curate a personal herbarium of bryophytes and bryophilous ascomycetes and am happy to incorporate new specimens or loan vouchers to others for projects.
