- Conservation status of New Zealand mosses, 2014 (PDF, 583.87 kB)
The conservation status of 109 New Zealand moss taxa was assessed using the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS). Four taxa and one undescribed entity that were not included in previous assessments have been added to the list. The conservation status of only two taxa has changed in this assessment. A full list is presented, along with a statistical summary and brief notes on the changes. This list replaces all previous NZTCS lists for mosses. Authors: Jeremy R. Rolfe, Allan J. Fife, Jessica E. Beever, Patrick J. Brownsey and Rodney A. Hitchmough
- Conservation status of New Zealand hornworts and liverworts, 2014 (PDF, 695.44 kB)
The conservation status of the New Zealand hornwort and liverwort flora is reassessed using the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS). A full list is presented, along with a statistical summary and brief notes on the most important changes. This list replaces all previous NZTCS lists for New Zealand hornworts and liverworts which previously had been part of a generic bryophyte conservation status assessment that included mosses.

Minute, colonial plants growing on a felted protonema on soil or rock. Leaves up to 0.6 mm long, red-brown, narrowly or broadly lanceolate, acute or obtuse, sometimes irregularly divided at the apex; margins bluntly toothed in upper half, without cilia. Cells most subrectangular, smooth, incrassate. Seta 10-25 mm long, red, smooth or slightly and finely papillose, glossy. Capsule 6-7 mm long, suberect, oval in outline, slightly flattened above, pale brown, smooth. Stomata superficial, often wanting, 2-celled. Outer peristome of more than one layer of cells. Operculum bluntly conical. Spores c.10 microns diameter.
October - February (possibly longer)
Not Threatened. Although very easily overlooked indications are that this species is genuinely uncommon and biologicaly sparse
Terricolous or saxicolous on acidic rocks and soils derived from these, where it usually grows from amongst dead or dying liverworts. This species has been collected from coastal to montane forest and scrub.
