Description

Still listed on ALA and VicFlora as Rosulabryum capillare. Can be confused with Rosulabryum torquescens but I think I have got it right. Image 6 shows the papillae on outer surface of the exostome, papillae dense but not in rows. Image 7 is the exostome tip and 8 is the cilia of the endostome while image 9 is the tip of the endostome segment.

Description

One of several Chiloscyphus species with teeth on outer leaf margin (images 6 & 7 show detail). This species also has a distinctive odour. The under leaves are widely bi-lobed with an additional tooth per lobe (image 5). They also connected to the main leaves on one side as is clearly seen on images 8 & 9. You can also see this connection on the right side of image 10. Image 11 shows detail of the under leaf teeth and you can see the small trigones between the cells of the main leaf in the final image.

You can just make out the under leaves arrowed in the second image. Individual leaves are shown in images 6 and 7 and the rhyzoids are partly obscuring an under leaf in the last image.

Description

Image 4 shows both a leaf and an under leaf. Images 5 to 8 are individual leaves and 9 to 11 are under leaves. Some plants of C. semiteres have a small bite out of their leaves (like this one) but is is never a deep bite and there are no points or teeth.
