Hi all,

Cyanobacteria, it is a Nostoc sp.

I thought Cyano, may have come from an aquarium as it looks as though there is Fissidens sp next to it.

Hi all,
Discovered something similar on my roof tiles. Still not certain it ain’t bird poop.
Not sure, I'm going animal rather than vegetable, but I like the mosses.

The "grey, furry" one is a Grimmia pulvinata & the green one a Bryum, Tortula, Synthichium or Barbula sp. <"Common mosses on walls - British Bryological Society">.

Possibly Tortula muralis? Because of the shape and abundance of the capsules?
