HuperziaceaeHuperzia appressaAppalachian FirmossRock outcrops at high elevations (very rarely at middle elevations), rarely also in seepage or along banks of small streams at high elevations, and in fens (on hummocks).QC and NL (Newfoundland) west to ON, MI, and MN and south along the Appalachians to w. NC, e. TN, and ne. GA. Previous reports of this Huperzia appressa from Greenland, Europe, and e.

Previous reports of Huperzia selago from the Central and Southern Appalachians re based on this species.image of plant
