Hello-

In an effort to move a baby turtle from underneath our rosemary shrub to the creek , we stumbled upon a beautiful fern/staghorn ground cover all along the underside of the creek bank.  Any idea what this could be, whether it would survive elsewhere and the conditions it needs to thrive?  It obviously loves moisture, but I’m curious to know the common name for this beautiful plant.  Many thanks in advance for your help!

Best!

    Looks like Liverwort, Lunularia spp.

    You can confirm ID by finding either tiny fanlike umbrella structures or chalise-like structures sticking up about 1mm above the “leaf”
