Ralph Pope’s  Mosses, Liverworts, and Hornworts describes Bryum argenteum as being “very common”, and “with a frosted look caused by white leaf tips”. Could this be that?

The white leaf bundle is very small, about 1/8″. I’m assuming that the red capsules are associated with the white leaves but I don’t really know.
