Hi All,

new to the site and to hunting but found this on Sunday, been told its a calamite / horsetail and just wanted to get some other opinions on it, apologies I didn't have a ruler on hand when taking the photos but this is around 6-7 inches

thanks!

Hi Pol,
The internodes are longer than they are broad and I don't see any branch scars so I'd suggest Calamites cistii.

Pete.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Yes, this is a small section of the horsetail 'Calamites'.
