Flower: Liverworts do not have flowers (and thus do not produce seed), instead they archegoniophores and antheridiophores (female and male sex organs). Liverwort are unisexual, with male and female sex organs forming on different plants. Antheridiophores look like an umbrella while the female achegoniophores have finger-like projections.

WOW Bill - thanks so much for identifying something that I have had cropping up in many of my gardens and trying to take them over!!! I had no idea what it was, and am having a problem keeping them out. I've never seen them in that stage, as I usually get rid of them as soon as I see them. I wish I had a rock garden that I could put them in instead - yours look VERY COOL!
