Common Ohio Liverwort
Photographs and Descriptions

This is a gallery of mostly common, and a few not so common, Ohio mosses. The thumbnails lead to individual species account pages. These pages, constructed by OMLA members Bob Klips (photos) and Diane Lucas (descriptions), show the general aspect, and in some instances microscopic leaf features, of just over 100 of the approximately 420 species reported to occur in the state. Each page’s text includes identification features, and habitat/substrate information, along with dot maps from the Ohio Moss Atlas showing which counties the mosses have been observed in. We hope you find this educational and enjoyable.
