I have two trays of this Riccardia species made up from field samples collected at different times 250 miles apart. Both trays are showing the same growth and from the appearance I am identifying them as sporophytes. I have been unable to find any photographs, neither online nor in my reference books, of the sexual parts of Riccardia species so if you can shine a different light on the subject please do.
Please excuse the quality of the images. They are taken with my sub £100 "field" bridge camera.
