I spent this weekend in Kodaikanal, where we went trekking in the forest. I found many types of mosses growing there. All these were growing emersed. I wonder if are aquatic. Here are a few pictures of these mosses.

Beta while I was in Kodaikanal a couple of months ago, I did not see any aquatic plants there. There may have been a few fish in the 1-2 streams but they all flow downhill so fast that it is a remote possibility.
Berijam lake is a good biotope but now protected since it's classified as a bio-diversity hotspot by a UN study. So a strict no-no looking or collecting there. Well you can get special permission from teh forest department and look, from a distance I suppose .
