Selaginella species Rambala, Panama

In a tiny patch of forest that remains in the middle of tracts of cattle pastures was this beautiful species of Selaginella.  The slightly iridescent slate grey combined with the reddish growing tips stands out as something unique.  It is a medium sized species that tends to trail more than stand upright.  Growing in this last remnant forest along with the red Oophaga pumilio from Rambala, it existence seems just as precious and precarious as that beautiful frog.
