Found some of these in the woods in a very shady area. Could this be 'Cypress Moss' ?

RE: Is this Cypress Club Moss Fern?

No. What you have is Lycopodium digitatum.
Were you planning to grow it in your yard?
Be forewarned that it is a VERY difficult plant to
transplant successfully, even with years of experience in
growing it. Otherwise I would recommend taking it back to
where you found it and replant it and hope it survives all the shock. For more info and images check the link below.
