This is a very low-growing, creeping plant with tiny leaves that forms extensive mats in damp, shady places, especially in built-up districts like urban Belfast where it grows on damp shaded garden or house walls. It has been introduced to Ireland from the islands of the western Mediterranean Sea.

All names: Soleirolia soleirolii (Req.) Dandy; Helxine soleirolii Req.
