Mountain fir-moss is not a moss. It is related to ferns. The population in Georgia is the southern most known population of the species. It appears to be very rare in the Appalachian portion of its range and listed as endangered by most States. There are less than 100 plants in this population making it one of the rarest plants in Georgia. Fortunately, it is hidden and well protected by inaccessibility. For more information:
