Contest question: what is this moss? Answered

Picture of

Can you help me identify this here critter? Found October 9th in Heritage Park in Blacksburg, Virginia. Specimen was found in a single, isolated patch on a short hillside under deep brush and about 10 yards from a Cattail marsh. First correct identification commented here or on the punklovedesigns facebook wall with means of identification wins the code for three months of Instructables Pro Service.

Winner will be chosen from available answers on Sunday 6th. Every time I get a bonus code for a featured tutorial I'll give it away here with another contest to try readers' Taxonomy skills.

Cheers,

You'll get a much better response if you post things like this in the forums.

Ahh! the deep murky corners of the internet. Been a while since I went down the forum rabbit hole.
