Abstract: The rigid apple moss is a small, brownish-green moss that grows in small tufts or patches. It has been found in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. It is rare in North America, reported from California, New Mexico, Texas, and British Columbia. In British Columbia, it has been found on Nanoose Hill near Nanaimo, on Lasqueti Island, and on two sites southwest of Victoria. It may have been extirpated at one site near Pedder Bay (Victoria). Population data are presented from the Nanoose Hill and Mary Hill sites, but are not available for the Pedder Bay or the Lasqueti Island sites. The Canadian populations probably represent under 0.01% of its global distribution and abundance. Little is known about the biological attributes that may influence the recovery of the rigid apple moss. It produces spores frequently and can reproduce by vegetative fragmentation. It is a temperate moss species requiring warm, summer dry sites, but there is little detailed information about the habitat needs for this species across its global range. Various microhabitats for this species include vertical rock faces, humus, fine litter, rock at the base of outcrops, and crevices and small ledges.
