Caption: Shining Hookeria moss. Dark field light micrograph of a section through shining hookeria (Hookeria luscens) moss, showing the stem and leaves. This moss grows in shady, moist conditions found alongside streams in woods. It has a filmy translucent appearance due to its extremely large cells, which can be seen with the naked eye, and the fact that the leaves are only one cell layer thick. The cells are hexagonal and the chloroplasts are clearly visible in the streaming cytoplasm (cyclosis). Magnification: x5 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
