Low Lesser-clubmoss (Selaginella selaginoides): In Southeast Alaska, this species is expected on islands and the northern mainland (FNA range map). Apparently few collections, but the e-flora BC collections map indicates at least one collection from the southern mainland, as well as other reports from the BC coastal mainland not far south of the border. (Given the somewhat odd distribution, perhaps this is a candidate species to check for evidence of genetic isolation in Southeast Alaska glacial refugia.)
