Hi everyone

Can someone confirm a id for me please?

I ordered three portions of mini Pelia Riccardia chamedryfolia (photos below) but it does not look right to me, it looks more like Round Pelia (Lomariopsis/Subwassertang)? Which the seller also sold and at a cheaper price. I do like to give the benefit of the doubt, it could have been a mistake or perhaps Riccardia chamedryfolia can look very different grown in a emersed state?

What do you think this is please?

Thank you in advance.

Hi
its difficult to see on your pictures in the bag.
It look nothing like Riccardia and more like Round pelia.
Riccardia emersed grows identical to the one underwater but more compact and ticker stems.
If I were you will contact the seller.

Thanks everyone, much appreciated and great link explaining the differences between Lomariopsis cf. lineata and Monosolenium tenerum. Looking close at what I received it’s the later.

Thanks again.
