  • FNA page for Mnium blyttii Collections of Mnium blyttii with weakly toothed or entire leaves are fairly common and can superficially be mistaken for Cinclidium or Rhizomnium. However, even though many leaves appear entire, some leaves will have small forward-pointing bumps at the distal ends of a few marginal cells. The border of linear cells, although not as distinct as with most species of Mnium, and the larger plant and leaf size readily separate well-developed specimens of M. blyttii from M. stellare, the only other species of Mnium that can produce a postmortal color in its laminal cells.
