Hi, was on a trip to the western ghats this week & had been to many places starting from Mangalore & ending at hubli. on my travel had a chance to come across this plant / moss.
Pls ID this since this was stuck on to a stone with just some water droplets on this plant (the plant was not submerged but stuck on the rock & the waves would ensure some water droplets fell on them.
The best thing was that this was found only on two rocks around an area of a km (rocks are the latrite stones which are in plenty in Mangalore area with lots of holes in them)
Last info - this was seen at a beach. I also am carrying some with me also i have been able to get very small dwarf hairgrass (the size of the plantlets is just around 2 mm max but cannot photo this)
Now for the photos - to me it looked like pelia moss but was in great form when i pulled some from the rock. also it has some very small root like structure below the green stuff. sorry if this is any common plant / weed but would like to know the name of the plant
