Scented Liverwort

Filed under: North American Native Plants,Seedless Plants — admin @ 05:46

I recently updated the images on the page for Conocephalum conicum (Scented Liverwort), primarily to add an image of the sporophyte. They look like really small mushrooms, and the dark, round spots at the base of the ‘cap’ are the sporangia. Meiosis takes place in the sporangia and they eventually release spores.
