For example one of the photographs of Spergularia bocconii on the website, has at least 9 stamens! According to the key of Pignatti this might be Spergularia nicaeensis!

Mahh!
I think we need to take measurements :P

The plants did not have any seeds when I photographed them. That is the main problem. Currently I am looking at the keys of Pignatti. I am getting more and more in doubt!
Will need to study this genus in more detail.

Thanks Stephan! These mosses were started when i brought a piece of moss from a valley (unfortunately I don't remember from where). In a few months they colonised almost the whole pot, and new mosses appeared. Hopefully will give pieces to MWP so he can photograph them with a microscope if he wishes...

moss in pot

trying to propagate Selaginella and Adiantum. Managed Adiantum from spores. Now some moss proliferating well - these are some mosses growing for Valerandi :p
Sorry but that was the best resolution I could do!

Thanks
