Looks like Hookeriacea which is a pretty rare moss. Cant imagine having that and not knowing about it, because its typically expensive. Unless it hitchhiked when you bought plants from somebody who had it

Beautiful moss!

...and, "one time I picked up some hitchhiking hooker" is a fun conversation starter
burr740 and Quint like this.

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

That sounds like a family name with an E left off the end. Perhaps the genus is something different?

Yeah I inadvertently cut the last e off copy/pasting, Hookeriaceae. Idk what the full name is. Google + moss will return some results.

These arent my pics, from a facebook auction
