Baby Moss or Algae?

The green patches that appear in areas that are frequently moist--is it moss trying to establish itself or is it algae? Is there a way to tell the difference at this stage?

Algae will be the first to colonize disturbed soil...
How advanced is this growth? Can you post a pic?


RE: Baby Moss or Algae?

It looks like green stains--on wood and concrete. We get a lot of it here. I'll post a pic soon. Thanks
