Clematis aka Old Man's Beard is another excellent tinder.

Clematis is a vine which scrambles over the top of other plants and loves to bask in the sun !

The vine itself is useful as cordage, but the feathery seeds will readily take a spark (when dry).
Its easy to collect some when you walk along a track, and is easy to spot. Walking tracks often expose the lower canopy to
light, and clematis loves that !
