More clues....I found this plant in the bush.

Would somebody like to make a guess as to what it could be ?

Could it be a fern of some sort :confused: .

Thanks minnow. From images on the net, looks like it could be conifer clubmoss. :)

Hi, if the surface of the plant is roughish, it looks like Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense) this grows a little similar to your photo. Cheers.

Its hard to be sure with out a very close shot of how the leafs (scales) are arranged..and to what degree they overlap...are the scales pointed or round at the tips?...botany type questions best answered with a close up if possible

The club moss Lycopodium sp is most likely by the fact its more common..however I will go out on a limb and go for Psilotum nudum......the equivalent of the tuatara in the plant world...both plants were around in the dinosaur times.

Good eyes for spotting it

Having seen similar in Taranaki bush I tend to agree. Link added above for Psilotum/'Whisk Fern'.
