    It looks like a green sea anemone : )

    Wonderful photo of an oddity. I believe what you see are the female involucres (essentially hollow sterile bracts) that each surround one archegonium which would be much smaller.

    Thanks for all the links — they show an exquisite “other world.”

    In the UK we get liverwort (probably Marchantia sp.) with every outdoor potted plant we buy. In Manchester you see different species under bridges and everywhere it is damp (which, if you know Manchester, is everywhere outdoors). I haven’t seen any quite so three-dimensional as this one.
