GEMMAE CUPS and GEMMAE on the Thalius of COMMON LIVERWORT (Marchantia polymorpha) - stock photo

GEMMAE CUPS and GEMMAE on the Thallus of COMMON LIVERWORT (Marchantia polymorpha). This image shows the dichotomous branching growth of this liverwort. The Gemmae Cups bear asexual reproductive structures called gemmae (bits of the liverwort) that can splash out of the cups (also called Splash Cups) with rain and form a new plant just like the parent thus dispersing the species. This liverwort grows very readily in greenhouses. Michigan
