The other species in the genus Ricciocarpos:

Ricciocarpos natans / Ichouugoke



Ricciocarpos natans / Ichouukigoke イチョウウキゴケ

Ricciocarpos natans is the only moss living and floating on the paddy- waters; no other mosses live not in the same way in this country. Leaves, correctly, fronds, are hemispheric, of green color that tinges red. When the growth excesses the shape of the hemisphere sideways, they divide themselves into two. Autumn sets in, and even if the paddies become dry, they continue to grow even on the dry ground.
