This leafy liverwort was found in the same place as Bucephalandra motleyana "Gunung Sumpit" on the island of Borneo. We think it may belong to the species Solenostoma tetragonum (synonym: Jungermannia tetragona), a liverwort largely distributed in the Asian tropics that is found in moist places. This slow-growing moss forms nice cushions from its ascending shoots with a very dense foliage with round leaflets. A single shoot is approx. 3 mm wide. Medium light, CO2 injection and a regular nutrient supply through the water are recommendable for this relatively demanding liverwort. It is tied to materials such as wood or stones or attached to moss pads. This liverwort attaches itself only slightly to the substrate. Especially in vitro (tissue culture) material needs some time to acclimatise in the aquarium and to start growing. We recommend only adding it to aquariums that are already cycled and running well.
