Translated from the blog of Staatsbosbeheer Texel in the Netherlands:

Scorpidium revolvens moss back in the Netherlands

July 2, 2012

In the nature reserve De Geul, part of National Park Dunes of Texel, former Staatsbosbeheer forester Kees Bruin discovered in valleys of the Moksloot area, restored in 1993, a special moss. It’s Scorpidium revolvens, a species which had been extinct in the Netherlands for more than half a century (since 1951).
