Comments: This is the Giant Moss, Dawsonia longifolia, living on the slopes of Mount Kinabalu in the East Malaysian state of Sabah, North Borneo. A single, nice sporophyte is present, covered with a conical, hairy, cap-shaped calyptra, giving rise to the common name of the Hairy Cap Mosses for this group. The plants seen here were about 1 ft. in height, making them trujly giants among the mosses. Bryophyta, Musci, Polytrichaceae.
