RE: Red shinner thread/

Sorry about my ignorance, but what is the Christmas moss?
Can you tell the scientific name, please? Looks like a native species.
I always been interested in aquatic moss (besides the ubiquitous
tropical Vesicularia dubyana) and I am wondering if this Christmas moss
is a Fontinalis or Amblystegium species.
Anyone knows how many native, fully aquatic moss species are in US?
