Sphagnum moss has very a distinctive structure resembling netting or webbing visible in the leaves and shown here in the antheridium. The same pattern is seen here in a sphagnum leaf.

The antheridium resemble peacock feathers. The abundance of similarities between all living things at all scales is mind blowing.
