Moss trade locally

I am wondering if anyone in the MA northshore/merrimack valley area would be interested in trading different types of moss. I have some healthy growing christmas moss (or maybe java moss) that is attempting to take over my tank. I would like to pass on some of it onto someone else in trade for some other type of moss. Maybe I can diversify my tank a little. A small warning that I am no expert in moss identification. It was sold to me as xmas moss but the seller didnt seem 100 percent confident on that. It does look like it to me when comparing it to pictures though. Check out the attached pics for yourself.
Let me know if anyone is interested. Please PM me. I travel a little locally for work so different meeting times and locations can be arranged.

The reason I didnt initially think it was java was because the structure of the strands seem more organized and the color was such a bright green. It seemed to be a different shade of green compared to any java moss I have seen. Granted I haven't seen a ton of moss but what I have seen in person always seemed more muted and darker green. You have me rethinking it though. I guess I will go through pics of mosses again tomorrow. Thanks for your opinion.
