This moss develops a conspicuous protonema on droppings just after deposition. After 1-2 yr, the moss reaches a complete development and fructifies abundantly. Diptera are attracted by the sporophytes. Spores remain attached to the body of flies and are thus dispersed. Populations are eventually covered with other bryophytes, larger in size, which are common on forest soils. -from English summary
