Abstract

Tortula lingulata Lindb. is a moss that is rare in Europe and under protection in Estonia. It grows sparsely on sandstone outcrops. Eight localities are known in Estonia. Main morphological characters of the species and environmental parameters were measured at five sites. The moss shoots were longer at sites with higher sandstone moisture, and the nerve of the leaves was wider at sites with higher moisture and conductivity level under the moss patch.
