This is the 2nd time Ive seen these pink critters in numbers.
Both times after a fair bit of rain and in the same place.
They are floating in small rivulets coming from an area of Raupo.
Of course no idea as to connection.

This one has me puzzled.
It's a mature liverwort but seems to only have one small gemma cup ( circled).
Is this a weird (to me) Marchantia polymorpha or another species ?
Thanks knowledgeable ones :)

Cheers Leon :)
A great example of how we learn here.
