The moss called "Mini Christmas Moss" in this database was spread in the hobby under the name "Mini Taiwan Moss", however, it does not belong to Isopterygium sp. (for further detail, please see www.aquamoss.net). It might be a species of the genus Vesicularia. Its origins are unknown. It may also be in trade under other names.

This moss looks like a miniature version of Christmas Moss (Vesicularia montagnei). It forms densely and regularly ramified filigree shoots with a triangular outline. It also resembles Vesicularia sp. "Triangle Moss", however, it differs by horizontal to overhanging shoots that never grow upwards.
It is not clear yet whether it differs from Vesicularia sp. "Anchor Moss" and a Vesicularia species sold as "China Moss", and if so, in which way.
