Important Fungus... Moss... Algae...? Plant.
Transcriptions available here.
Yes. A fungus who married an algae. Alga? Algae? By Latin rule, "ae" is plural... So alga? Oi vey, learning English would be easier if it wasn't a melting pot of so many languages! Granted, English was one of many languages that already had a heavy base in Latin. But still.
I honestly have no idea where Iceland moss grows best at. For the purposes of this story, and possibly as a rule of the JAD world, it grows best near volcanoes. Dormant volcanoes. I won't be changing the "sensitive to dirty air" property of the plant.
Even though it should go without saying, do not take medical advice from a comic about airborne furballs.
