    I'm really new to bryophytes and was just wondering if anyone could help me with this moss, even if it's just the genus! Been trying to work it out for the last few days without any luck.

    I found it on a dead tree trunk (I think silver birch) in some ancient woodland. 

    Thank you in advance!!

    Most mosses are too difficult to ID with 100% confidence using photos alone. Your moss is probably Hypnum cupressiforme. As a bonus you also have the lichen Parmelia sulcata in the image!
