I found this beauty on the Heiss Mountain trail, part of the Cumberland Trail, in Soddy Daisy, TN. The second pic (lighter one) was taken in the Smokies, on the Spruce Flats Falls trail. It grows on the ground, at the base of trees. Many thanks in advance.

Campylopus flexuosus? If not, it should be considered part of the Bryophyte group.

I think I read that there are over 400 Bryophytes in the Smoky MTN and Cumberland trail areas of Tennessee. I did find an article that may help figure out species in that area

I did find this list of Mosses known to grow in that area.
