Attached images are Equisetum sp. Please ID the plant

Location: North Garo Hills, Meghalaya
Family : Equisetaceae
Genus & species :Equisetum sp. 
Habitat: Grows wild near the stream on sandy soil
Habit : Herb
Equisetum ramosissimum- observe the pointed cone-apex. I can't say if it is forma ramosissimum or forma debile without seeing it in front of me, but debile is commoner there - and those two forms are not so important it seems.

Equisetum sp ?? 

Yes, of course. E. ramosissimum (most is the forms debile, ehich is hardly worth recognising taxonomically). Do feel free to contact Dhan Raj Kandel, Dept. of Plant Resources, Godavary, for both identification and access to literature.
