to me it looks like taiwan.
could be weeping though.

mosses are really difficult to ID unless you have a microscope. to me, there are only a few types of mosses: java, taiwan, fissidens, flame, and pellia.

java is that stringy stuff that lives under truly ANY conditions, fissidens has that unique 'frond-like' shape, pellia is just pellia (its a liverwort actually, not a moss, but its sort of under the same category as mosses), and flame is dark and grows in that curly, upright 'flame' shape. Then there is taiwan, which is like peacock, willow, christmas, erect, spiky, weeping, taiwan, etc, which i personally lump together under the general 'taiwan' group. I know there are subtle differences between all of them, but i have yet to see any major differences between those sp.
