I think it is a Selaginella, thanks Scott and thank you Gerardo.

Take a look at this: http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Selagi.... This is a Central American Selaginella, not a South American one, but it is very similar.

Beautiful. Club moss seems possible, but it doesn't resemble any North American species, or even genus. Maybe a spikemoss, Selaginella?
