Entodon luridus, from here.

Belongs within: Hypnales.

The Entodontaceae are a family of mosses with creeping, often irregularly branched stems. They are particularly diverse in tropical montane habitats. Members of the type genus Entodon have concave leaves with a weak double costa.

Characters (from Khatun & Hadiuzzaman 2006): Medium-sized, slender, glossy plants growing in loose tufts. Main stem creeping, irregularly to pinnately or sub-pinnately branched, branches generally julaceous. Stem and branch leaves more or less similar, leaves crowded in many rows, usually appressed at least when dry, sometimes more or less complanate, mostly symmetrical. Costa absent or very short, double and delicate. Leaves linear to oblong-linear, smooth, those at the basal angle quadrate and rectangular or transversely rectangular, sometimes in many oblique rows, alar region well-differentiated.
