Common Liverwort Marchantia polymorpha subsp ruderalis

Following on from a previous blog, these female reproductive structures of the Common Liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha subsp ruderalis) are now showing the white cotton candy-like sporophytes beneath the umbrella-like archegonial heads. These are the spore capsules which when released may germinate into new plants.

And all this going on in a small plant pot with only moss (those orange structures forming part of the background) and this liverwort.
