サヤゴケ

共生の森の近くで、サヤゴケを見つけました。乾燥や大気汚染に強く、都市部でも見つけることができるコケです。和名は、朔(さく、胞子をつくる器官)の柄が葉に包まれていることに由来します。


I found a moss called "Saya-goke (サヤゴケ)" near the Kyoseinomori-Forest (共生の森). They are resistent to dryness and air pollution, so you can find them in urban areas. "Saya (サヤ)" in its name means "sheath" and comes from the fact that the stalks in their capsules, which produce spores, are wrapped by leaves.
