Plant identification

Asked July 17, 2017, 3:41 PM EDT

Can you please identify this small, very low plant growing in with my moss? It is in a full shade area. Lobed eaves are 1/4 - 1/2 inch across and it looks as if some them have a green 8-9 petaled flower on a dark stem.

You have lichen growing in with your moss. They like the same conditions. Here is a link to more info. https://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/beauty/lichens/habitat.shtml

Sorry, the plants growing with the flowers are a type of liverwort. http://www.ipm.msu.edu/green_industry/landscape/liverworts
