Dear all
Sharing pics of a beautiful Liverwort Marchantia. Sp i dont know
But first time i have seen such a gorgeous Marchantia with gemmae cups, anthridia and archegonia on this. Before this we have not seen such a lovely plant live and only working with this as preserve
this was growing as unwanted weed in the area and green house of Deovan Herbal garden
I consider this as best "Lower plant of the Tour"

ALONG THIS I AM ALSO SHARING SOME MEMORABLE MOMENTS OF THIS VISIT

THANKS

Nice collection of images.
Seems like gemma cup of Marchantia in DSC06578Sm and the elongated
ones are antheridiophores of Marchantia.
Thanks for sharing.

Sorry Sir, i dont know how i missed this one. Sir this is Marchantia polymorpha (Bryophyte (Liverwort). The Gemma cup is very clear and distinct in  DSC06578Sm.JPG along with antheridia and archigonia.  DSC06585Sm.JPG  is mixed with Anthoceros (Hornwort). Not clear about the species. Please share any other bryophyte if you have taken the snap in that tour. 

Yes the group photos and the landscapes are really awesome.

Regards

Prasad

Lovely and detailed documentation of  Marchantia polymorpha (thanks to Prasad ji). 
I felt a Marcantia expedition from the series of pictures.

Thanks and Regards
