Seemingly trivial, but that's interesting. The name "Java Moss" has a quite confusing history in the aquarium hobby, explained i.a. in an article in the German journal DATZ:
Christel Kasselmann (2007): Verwirrung um den Namen Javamoos. Datz 8/2007.
Prof. Benito C. Tan from Singapore has made known that the common "Java Moss" in the aquarium hobby, mostly called Vesicularia dubyana, is actually Taxiphyllum barbieri
But many years ago hobbyists in Europe cultivated also true Vesicularia dubyana
as "Java moss", and this moss came from Java in the 1930s.
As far as I've read, botanists didn't find the species Taxiphyllum barbieri in Indonesia, but in Vietnam only.
Did You collect some of the moss that You have found?
