Tom Ottley brought us to Old Roar Ghyll, in the middle of Hastings, Sussex, UK, during the British Bryological Society spring meeting in April 2014 and showed this beautiful and rare species of Pocket-moss. The ghyll had many more unusual species especially on the sandstone rock faces with dripping water.
