Help finding liverworts.

Postby coolbreeeze » Fri Jun 29, 2012 4:47 am

Due to some classes I have taken within my major, I have become increasingly fascinated with Bryophytes, specifically liverworts. I live in the Kansas City area of Missouri; it's mostly suburban but there are some areas of deep forest/creeks/lakes/etc. Recently I have been going out and looking for liverworts, as I've never actually seen one in nature. I feel as if I'm looking in the right place (I go down to this large creek in the middle of a deep forest. Soil is moist, lots of trees and such.) I found many different mosses and lichens, yet no liverworts. I guess mainly when I look for them, I find myself often looking for the stereotypical thallose liverwort. Regardless, if any of you could point me in the right direction that would be great. I have an eBook on the different species of moss, liverworts, and lichens, so they obviously exist in Missouri, but do they exist around the Kansas City area? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
