Is this Rose or Mini-Rose Moss?


This was sold to me as "Rose Moss" (Jungermannia pseudocyclop) from AFA in San Francisco. However after looking at pictures online, I believe it is actually mini-rose/pearl moss (Blepharostoma trichophyllum). Can anyone help confirm?

I don't know crap about moss taxonomy, but that's probably the coolest moss I've ever seen.

I hope it does well for you so you can hook me up!!!!!

From google, this is what Rose Moss is supposed to look like:
(the one on the left)




And this is what Mini-Rose Moss should look like:




So to me, it looks more like mini. But I'm HORRIBLE at IDing plants.

That is rose moss.
Mini rose looks completely different.

Please elaborate. How does what I have look different than the photos of min-Rose Moss I posted? To me it looks the same, while the regular rose moss has larger pedals that are perpendicular to the stem, while what I have, and the photos of mini-rose moss run in-line.

Just an update, found a SCAPE member familiar with both Rose and Mini-Rose moss. Regular rose moss should have the leaves wrapping around the frond, with a yellowish top, while mini rose moss has longer fronts, and the leaves are opposite each other running the length of the frond.

So what I have appears to be Mini-Rose Moss, aka Pearl Moss.
