Thanks saltcedar.
I checked the link for selaginelle. Doesn't look too much like picture...

Let Google be your friend, Pete. There are about 700 species of Selaginella. Saltcedar has pointed you in the right direction.:-)

Pete, did you scroll down and look at the photos under the heading Six Selaginella for the Savvy Fella? Some of those are quite close to your photo -- the first 3 in particular.
