Itatiaia plant 30 (Lycopodium)

On the way to the Itatiaia park entrance, towards Agulhas Negras, you’ll find the only sturdy man-made construction – a bridge painted in white. From here you have great views of the montane forest, the land below and the shrubs and small trees in the gully below in particular. However, there is yet another location […]

Lycopodium thyoides

The very last couple of kilometres of road to the plateau of Itatiaia National Park is blocked by the park entrance, and even though you can drive to the camping site by the small dam, it’s not worth it! You’ll miss all the magnificent flora and fauna along the dirt road. In the rainy season […]

Myk kråkefot (Lycopodium clavatum)

Karakteristisk to-delt sporeaks som vokser fra en lang stilk. Stri kråkefot har kun et enkelt sporeaks per stilk..

Myk kråkefot (Lycopodium clavatum)

De hvite hårene er kjennetegnet på en myk kråkefot.

Lusegras (Huperzia selago)

Like ved Nydammen nord for Gjersjøen kom jeg over denne fantastiske samlingen lusegress – den største samling av arten jeg har kommet over så langt.

Cayambe Coca plant 10 (Lycopodium)

One of several species of Lycopodium at this altitude. Looks like spruce! Altitude 3450 metres.

Club-moss (Lycopodium crassum)

This is perhaps the most eye-catching of all the club-mosses, and is the first I’ve seen that’s not green. It looks ancient and prehistoric. Altitude 4200 metres.

Lusegras (Huperzia selago)

Godt oppe i de høyeste og bratteste skråningen dypt inne i Delingsdalen er det mange store og flotte lusegress. Disse kom jeg over etter å ha fulgt etter noen tretåspettunger oppetter åssiden. Lusegress skilles kanskje best fra de andre i kråkefotfamilien ved at de har sporesekker, eller sporangium rundt midten av de årsgamle skuddene. Yngleknopper.
