- Phylo (or if you rather use our preferred term of endearment, Phylomon), is many things. It is:
1. A card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity.
2. An exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open source game development.
3. Freakin' awesome!

Rhizomnium glabrescensFACT: There is a rosette of rounded, glossy perigonial leaves surrounding the reproductive structures of the male gametophyte. This arrangement works as a splash cup mechanism to disperse sperm.
Dicranum scopariumFACT: Its common name comes from the falcate (curved)-secund (to one side) leaves of the gametophyte, which give it the appearance of a tiny broom. It is commonly found growing in exposed sites epiphytically on tree trunks, on rotten logs, exposed cliff edges, or forest floors.
Cold, Cool, Warm
Pseudotaxiphyllum elegansFACT: Their common name is given due to their very shiny shoots. Do not be fooled by their leaf arrangement! Their leaves appear to be arranged in two rows however they are actually spirally arranged. Able to grow on acidic banks.Cool, Warm
Buckiella undulataFACT: Produces wavy (undulated) leaves which corresponds to their genus undulata. Can be found covering a wide variety of substrates in coniferous forests or along streams.Cold, Cool, Warm
Andreaea nivalisFACT: This moss’ common name arose from the appearance of their sporangium taking on a lantern appearance when the sporangium is expanded. When the sporangium dries up it expands, and gaps form where the 4 lines of dehiscence are located, allowing spores to be released.Cold, Cool, Warm
Tetraphis pellucidaFACT: This moss is able to rapidly colonize disturbed sites in two ways: fragmentation and gemmae production via a splash cup gemmiferous shoots, especially in areas where decaying logs are found. However, when dominant competitors appear, like Rhizomnium glabrescens, their sporophytes develop and help propagate them for long range dispersal!Cool, Warm
