100 Species Challenge -- Species # 28


I don't know what this is. I cannot find it on the internet, probably because my vocabulary is not full of terms that scientists use for non-flowering plants. This flat, moss-like plant was found growing on the rocks at Ledges State Park with some moss and ferns.

I checked back to find you still finding plants and great places to be outdoors this fall!
These are liverworts, one of the non-flowering plant groups. Ferns, lichens, algae and horsetails are also non-flowering, but they are not related - each has a different way of growing and reproducing.
What a great find!
