Bryologizing with an Expert

I had the good fortune to connect with Jim Shevock of the Cal Academy recently over some of my bryo photos, and he ended up showing my some cool bryos in the East Bay this weekend. It was great getting to learn some mosses and liverworts with an expert, as I find these to be very challenging to ID without a microscope. Now I feel like I have a good feel for some new genera (Orthotrichum, Porotrichum, Homalothecium), and I'm looking forward to paying closer attention to them in the future. I even think I can get a hornwort to genus now!
