Hypnodendron or Mniodendron?

Gorgeously funky Umbrella Moss growing along the MacGregor Peak track.

According to the ALA there are four species of Hypnodendron found in Tassie, three of which are widespread - Hypnodendron comosum, H. spininervium and H. vitiense. However AusMoss refers to Hypnodendron comosum as Mniodendron comosum. So is this Hypnodendron or Mniodendron, and which species?

Many thanks to Dracophylla for the loan of their Olympus!
