ADA carpet moss

ive looked at alot of ADA's tank and they use a moss as a carpet, that looks very cool and im looking for some for my tank.
Does anybody know what species it is?
From AWF they told me it was christmas moss, just with constant trimming and high light/co2 conditions. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

I see no moss carpet in those pictures. I see riccia, micro sword, hemianthus callitrichoides(HC), glossostigma carpets but no moss.
