Yes, in fact I think it is an equisetum ... but it's smaller than any other specie I've seen here.

I know, but the positioning I can't find anything that matches. However, it sure seems to be an Equisetum.

It's almost half the size or more that Equisetum giganteum. This one is about 40 cm high.

Though I am not exactly sure of which species of Equisetum this would be I think that it is a member of this genus.
