Two new moss species discovered in the Netherlands


This video is about mosses.

Translated from Vroege Vogels radio in the Netherlands, 8 March 2015:

At the edge of the blast site of Tata Steel in Velsen two new special moss species were discovered by Henk Siebel: Ceratodon conicus and Didymodon umbrosus.

Probably they came with transport (boat or truck) for Tata Steel, then the two new mosses settled in the industrial area.

These species had never been seen in the Netherlands before.
