Horsetail Hybrids

My putative  Equisetum x dycei, the hybrid between E. fluviatile (Water Horsetail) and E. palustre (Marsh Horsetail) from Lochan Uisge has been confirmed by Chris Page.  Also two specimens collected during the 2011 BSBI Field Meeting on Skye have been confirmed as  Equisetum x mildeanum, the hybrid between E. pratense (Field Horsetail) and E. sylvaticum (Wood Horsetail). These are the first vice-county records for this hybrid and were collected by Carl Farmer, Sallie Jack and Chris Irvine.
